About this Event

Pianist-composer Eric McElroy is joined by international Indian tenor Anando Mukerjee for this song-recital in Europe's oldest purpose-built concert hall. Cherished song-cycles by John Ireland and Gerald Finzi are placed alongside four masterful settings of John Addington Symonds by Ian Venables, "Britain's greatest living composer of art song" (Musical Opinion). The concert also features the premiere of Eric McElroy's new cycle of three poems by Grevel Lindop, "One of the most complex and sophisticated British poets...Classical tradition fused with the edginess of late modernism" (Harvard Review). A pre-concert talk at 7:15pm with Grevel Lindop considers the relationship between poetry and music.

PROGRAMME:

  • Ian Venables: Venetian Songs, Op. 22
  • Gerald Finzi: O Fair to See
  • John Ireland: Songs Sacred and Profane
  • Eric McElroy: Tongues of Fire (*premiere*)
