Baritone Sir Thomas Allen
Host Alexa Petrenko finds her inspiration in the music of England. In her words:
Baritone Sir Thomas Allen and pianist Geoffrey Parsons have packed a picnic basket full of beautiful English songs from the decade leading up to the Great War. Vaughan Williams’ settings of the sonnets of Dante Gabriel Rossetti, ‘House of Life’; ‘Seven Elizabethan Lyrics’ by Roger Quilter; and George Butterworth’s settings of AE Housman’s A Shropshire Lad will feed your imagination with the feelings and images they evoke.”
Sunday Night at the Opera, at 9 PM on The New Classical FM.
