English tenor and pianist James Gilchrist and Anna Tilbrook have been exploring the richness of Romantic song together for many years. Their programme includes Schubert’s first song cycle Einsamkeit whose great span Schubert seems to master without effort, spinning glorious melodies, transfixing us with almost visual imagery, together with Purcell’s miraculous O Solitude, Clara Schumann’s Six Songs, a new work by Jonathan Dove and Ralph Vaughan Williams’s archetypically Romantic Songs of Travel.

'To be alone, to wander out into the world, severing the bonds of homeland, seeking a direction and a goal as yet unknown. Two important themes of Romanticism, both in the German and the English tradition. These themes pervade our programme, as a thread weaving through the whole.'
James Gilchrist

'No one tells a musical story with more wonder, more delicacy than James Gilchrist'.
