Crucible Studio Theatre, Sheffield

La Belle Époque Opening Night Concert: Baudelaire and the Bassoon

Programme Information


Warm, evocative, sensual… arresting, daring, forward-looking.
The music of Ravel and Debussy is all these things and more. Over one weekend in March, Ensemble 360, Catrin Finch and guests present the complete chamber music of these two radical and inspirational composers as part of our Festival of Chamber Music and Song from France’s Golden Age, presented in collaboration with University of Sheffield Concerts.
 

Ensemble 360’s ‘bassoonist in a million’ Amy Harman is joined by Louise Alder ‘the brightest lyric soprano of the younger generation’ and winner of the BBC Cardiff Singer of the World 2017 Audience Prize, and pianist in a ‘class of his own’ James Baillieu.

This evening’s concert celebrates the mid-19th century French poet Charles Baudelaire, an enormously important figure in both modern literature and art, and the composers he admired and influenced.

Pre-concert talk, 6.15-6.45

A pre-concert talk will be given by Professor Helen Abbott, from Birmingham University, Director of the Baudelaire Song Project. Free to all concert ticket holders. Please request a separate ticket when booking.
