Lucy Goddard and Siwan Rhys: - American Songbook - 19th Sep 2017

Lucy Goddard and Siwan Rhys: - American Songbook Event Image

Mezzo-soprano Lucy Goddard is delighted to return to her home village to perform an American-themed song recital with Welsh pianist Siwan Rhys.

The programme will include works by Charles Ives, John Cage, Henry Cowell, Milton Babbitt, George Crumb and Morton Feldman (including two UK premieres).

Woven into this programme will be British composer Michael Finnissy’s musings on American author Walt Whitman. At this troubling time in American history, we aim to explore and celebrate America’s cultural heritage. Lucy and Siwan will benefit from a six-day Aldeburgh residency in August to prepare and record the programme before performing it in Hurstpierpoint.

Lucy is grateful to the PRS for Music Foundation, RVW Trust, Hinrichsen Foundation, Snape Maltings and Arts Council England for their generous support of this project.
