The programme includes works by composers who have visited the house, most recently Jonathan Dove. His spirited and tender duet cycle Man, Woman, Child sets texts by the Australian poet Judith Wright and tells a story of love, healing and new life. It was commissioned by Samling Institute for Young Artists in 2021 to celebrate the organisation’s 25th anniversary.

Dove spent time at Marchmont in July 2021 working with young singers on the residential Samling Artist Programme. He follows in the footsteps of Sir Charles Villiers Stanford and Ralph Vaughan Williams, both of whom were friends of Robert Finnie McEwan and were frequent guests and whose music also features in this concert.

Nicky Spence* was described by The Times as ‘a tenor who combines heroic tone and a poetic sensibility that takes the breath away’

Haegee Lee took part in the first Samling Artist Programme residency for early career singers and pianists at Marchmont House in 2021.

They are joined by the distinguished pianist Malcolm Martineau OBE, one of the world’s greatest song accompanists. He is also making a welcome return to Marchmont House, having led the Samling Artist Programme week in November 2021.

*Please note - change of performer (at 22.04.22)

Sadly Ted Black who was in the original billing has had to withdraw, but we are delighted to welcome Nicky Spence in his place.

‘I can’t sing, I can only sing through you. My task is to offer you something that will allow you to make a connection and take the texts out into the world’.
