Richard Causton | La Terra Impareggiabile
February 6, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm£5
Baritone Marcus Farnsworth and pianist Huw Watkins perform Beethoven, Schubert and the world premiere of Richard Causton‘s song cycle La Terra Impareggiabile (The Incomparable Earth). Written over a span of more than twenty years, La Terra Impareggiabile sets words by the Sicilian poet and Nobel Prizewinner Salvatore Quasimodo (1901-1968). The ten songs trace a trajectory from birth to death through the prism of Quasimodo’s extraordinary, exalted imagery of nature and love.
More of Richard Causton’s works will be performed the following evening by Ensemble ISIS.
