Roderick Williams with Roger Vignoles: Hearing Pictures

Roderick Williams with Roger Vignoles: Hearing Pictures


Lancaster Arts is honoured to welcome Roderick Williams back to Lancaster for the first time since 2020, this time accompanied on piano by Roger Vignoles.

With Williams, a recital is more than just a selection of beautifully sung miniatures. It’s a flight, and this evening, Roderick and Roger cross nations and centuries to explore a landscape of the imagination – soaring from the English coastline of Benjamin Britten to the heights of Schubert’s Austrian alps.

Roderick Williams OBE is one of this country’s most sought-after opera singers, performing a wide repertoire from baroque to contemporary music. He sings with all of the BBC orchestras, many other major UK orchestras and at the Royal Opera House, Opera North and Scottish Opera. In 2023, he sang at the coronation of King Charles III.

Roger Vignoles is recognised worldwide as one of the leading piano accompanists of our time. In a career already spanning nearly four decades he has partnered many eminent artists, including Sir Thomas Allen, Olaf Bar and many more.
