LET THE FLORID MUSIC PRAISE!
Soprano Martha Guth and Pianist Graham Johnson

VISI proudly welcomes back audience favourite and pianist extraordinaire Graham Johnson. His much anticipated return coincides perfectly with Britten's Centennial, a composer for whom Mr. Johnson has special affinities and extensive knowledge. Author of The Vocal music of Benjamin Britten (Guildhall 2003), Mr. Johnson will share the stage with soprano Martha Guth, acclaimed VISI founding faculty member and 2007 Wigmore Hall International Song Competition winner. Together, they will concoct an evening full of magic!

The recital's first half tells the story of Goethe's Mignon, in settings by Schubert, Schumann, Wolf, and others. Britten's On this Island (on poems by Auden) is presented in the second half, interwoven with Britten's realisations of Purcell songs, shedding innovative light on one of Britten's famous song cycles.
