Programme to include songs and piano music by Mendelssohn, Sterndale Bennett, Parry and Stanford. Stephen Varcoe is one of Britain’s leading baritones, with a distinguished career in recital, oratorio and opera, and many recordings. Iain Farrington enjoys a varied career as a pianist and organist in a wide range of repertoire, and is also active as a composer and arranger. This public concert forms part of the Fifth Biennial International Conference on Music in Nineteenth-Century Britain and the programme picks up on one of the conference’s main themes: the impact of Mendelssohn and other continental composers on music in nineteenth-century Britain. It will include Mendelssohn’s rarely-heard settings of Scottish national songs and his solo piano Fantasy on ‘The Last Rose of Summer’, as well as songs by Pinto, Samuel Wesley, Attwood, Sterndale Bennett, Gounod, Pierson, Parry, and Stanford, and such late-Victorian favourites such as Adams’s ‘The Holy City’.
