Mark Padmore & Andrew West

Mark Padmore & Andrew West


Mark Padmore is a tenor who sings from both his heart and mind - this exceptional musician has earned his reputation as one of the UK’s very finest tenors. He is joined by the distinguished pianist (and former Lancaster pianist in residence) Andrew West.

SCHUBERT - Heine settings from Schwanengesang
HENZE - Songs of the Arabian
SCHUMANN - Dichterliebe, Op.48

Dichterliebe “The Poet’s Love” and the selection from Schwanengesang “Swan Song” are both cycles of poems by Heinrich Heine. Having performed these works throughout his career, Padmore brings a unique intensity and depth of emotion to these great lyric works by Schumann and Schubert. He will also perform a selection of songs from Henze’s mythical Songs of the Arabian before he takes the complete cycle to the Vienna Festival.
