Ailish Tynan (soprano) and Simon Lepper (piano)

Firth Hall

La Belle Époque: The Short Straw

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.
 

The Short Straw: Nursery rhymes, fairy tales and fables... for grown ups!

Celebrated soprano Ailish Tynan partners with pianist Simon Lepper to conclude our French weekend. The carafe jealous of a giraffe, the Queen of Hearts’ strange icy domain, and the adventures of a flea, an elephant and a pot of jam… Poulenc’s delightful, charming, nonsensical and surreal ‘La Courte Paille’ inspires this programme exploring the voice of children in French song.
