Early Music Voices: Flow my Tears - Songs for voice and lute (Iestyn Davies, countertenor)
Rising star countertenor, Iestyn Davies has performed all over the world, including the Metropolitan Opera in New York. You can hear him here in the intimate setting of Christ Church Elbow Park in this gorgeous recital of English renaissance songs with Thomas Dunford, lute.
Their program will include music by John Dowland, Thomas Campion and Robert Johnson, the best-loved composers of this period.
Pre-concert talk begins at 7:30pm.
(includes recordings, images & reviews)
Iestyn Davies is, quite simply, one of the very finest countertenors I have heard in many a year. His interpretations are quite without the mannered and artificial qualities that characterise the work of many countertenors; indeed, 'natural' is one of the first adjectives that springs to mind on hearing him. His singing has real delicacy and tenderness, supported by a great underlying strength and security. His beauty of tone seems always at the service of musical expression, rather than an object of self-indulgence. Add to this remarkable certainty of pitch and impressive clarity of diction and one has most of the qualities one could desire in a singer.
