Ian Bostridge &
Julius Drake

Celebrated for the remarkable passion, drama and directness of his elegant performances, British tenor Ian Bostridge is widely admired as one of the world's most perceptive and accomplished musicians.

Songs by Mahler, Weill and Britten

Ian Bostridge is joined by the eminent pianist Julius Drake, musical partner of choice for a host of world-renowned singers, he brings a wide-ranging recital to The Queen's Hall, whose warm intimacy provides the ideal setting to appreciate the duo's consummate craft.

Together they explore songs of lost innocence and unrequited love by Mahler, from the countryside idylls of early Lieder to the achingly poignant Songs of a Wayfarer.

Kurt Weill and Benjamin Britten's heartfelt responses to conflict are revealed by Weill's pleas for peace in his Four Walt Whitman Songs, and moving depictions of the young during wartime in Britten's Who Are These Children.
