The first countertenor to win the Ferrier Award, Hugh is joined by fellow performers Rebecca Leggett, and Thames Concerts’ Artistic Director Ben Costello, in this programme of German lieder, English art song and French mélodie.
Song is central to Hugh’s ambition, and he seeks to expand the possibilities of countertenor repertoire in this sphere. In the 2022/2023 season, he performs ‘Untethered’, a programme based on Michael A. Singer’s book ‘The Untethered Soul’ which centres around the concept of liberation, namely from the thoughts and perspectives that disturb our daily lives. He performs this first at the Brighton Festival, and in this Thames Concerts 2022/23 Series. Many of these works will be recorded as part of Hugh’s involvement in the BBC New Generation Artist scheme for later broadcast on Radio 3.
Admission £16 on the door (or at an advance discount via Ticketweb).
