“Ian Bostridge is one of the great performers of our time, a magnificent, exciting singer. In this programme I wanted to present some airs de cour by the French composer Michel Lambert, together with pieces from Henry Purcell’s Orpheus Britannicus and a cantata by Handel – two English composers that Ian has championed so well with us. An intimate recital, poetry set to music, in which the text is all-important and the music speaks quietly, as if personally, to the listener.”
