Northern Ireland Opera Festival of Voice 2017
John Toal presents the last in our series of recitals from Northern Ireland Opera's Festival of Voice 2017, recorded at St. Patrick's Church of Ireland in Glenarm. In this final Lunchtime Concert from the series, tenor Tony Spence performs Poulenc's "Tel jour telle nuit" - one of the composer's most important song-cycles and written in 1937, performed with pianist Simon Lepper. Pianist Joseph Middleton returns with mezzo-soprano Jennifer Johnston for a piece by Purcell, his "Evening Hymn", first published in 1688. And to complete this week's series, Irish baritone Gavan Ring sings Schumann's "Dichterliebe", a song-cycle around the theme of unrequited love.
