About this Event

Soleils couchants/The End of Day

Elizabeth Hilliard (soprano) and David Bremner (piano) perform works by French, Belgian and Irish composers including Nadia Boulanger, Augusta Holmès, Poldowski and featuring Irish composer Rhona Clarke’s beautiful song cycle The End of Day. Tying in with the theme for 2021 #ItsAboutTime, there are references to time throughout the recital, from Poldowski's setting of Verlaine's tempting hour, to the passing of time in Clarke's song cycle, as it moves between images of childhood and old age.

Finding a Voice

For the fourth edition of Finding a Voice in 2021, the concert series will again focus on the music of women composers through the ages, building and expanding on the first three highly successful series since 2018. The theme for 2021 is #ItsAboutTime and several concerts will focus on the notion of “time” in all its different iterations, from Fanny Mendelssohn-Hensel’s epic piano piece Das Jahr [The Year], to percussionist Alex Petcu’s exploration of time in relation to rhythm, tempo and duration. Finding a Voice will also celebrate a significant anniversary in 2021 – the bi-centenary of the birth of Pauline Garcia Viardot, one of the most significant musical figures of the nineteenth century.
