Mark Padmore – War and Peace
with Julius Drake, piano
Saturday 15 September, 7.30pm, St Endellion Church
A programme of music and readings to commemorate the end of the First World War. Some of the most powerful songs ever written take war and the yearning for peace as their subject. Mark Padmore and Julius Drake will perform songs by Schubert, Schumann, Wolf, Mahler, Ravel, Poulenc, Finzi, Gurney, Britten and Tippett. With readings from Wilfred Owen, Edward Thomas and Charles Causley, this promises to be a thought-provoking evening on a theme we must never cease to question.
