Event details

Student ensembles from the University of Southampton Music Department perform their first recitals of the year, examined as part of their undergraduate studies. Admission is free and open to the public.

Lucy Griffiths & Fran King, flutes
Paul Gardner, piano

Franz Doppler: Duettino sur des Motifs Americains
Jean-Jacques Naudot: Sonata for Two Flutes
Luigi Hughes: Grand Concerto Fantasy (on themes from "Un Ballo in Maschera" by Verdi)


Harry Bennett, baritone
Darcey Wynter, piano

Gerald Finzi: Earth and Air and Rain (Song Cycle selection)
Words by Thomas Hardy

Ranging from the regretful "So I have fared" to the dramatic "The Clock of the Years" and of course to the raucous "Rollicum-Rorum", the sheer diversity in moods between songs come across not just from the text, but Finzi has managed to entwine such emotions into the vocal line and accompaniment, creating a vibrant unity between the two.


Lauren Else, soprano
Giles Nash, piano
