Bringing the inaugural Festival to a close in dramatic style, baritone Dominic Sedgwick and soprano Jacquelyn Stucker -- two Young Artists at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden -- perform songs from Hugo Wolf’s exquisite Italian Songbook. A collection of vivid and colourful miniatures capturing the intensities of human life, love, and experience, the rest of the programme takes inspiration from Wolf's settings of Italian folk texts, exploring themes of folklore and tradition within a sumptuous array of songs by Barber, Berg, Butterworth, and Debussy.
