Bridge to Britten
with Ian Partridge
Accompanist: Richard Shaw
Friday 11 – Sunday 13 November 2016
Course No. 3206
Solo Study Course
Examining the relationship and journey from Frank Bridge, who ‘discovered’ and then taught Benjamin Britten, to our greatest home grown composer’s work itself. From Love Went A Riding to Winter Words, there is a great choice of repertoire, and if you would like to compare other British composers then you are also welcome to do so. Singers could also bring any English songs from early 20thC onwards to look at in this context.
