Toby Spence's cleverly constructed recital explores the musical kinship bteween three of the finest twentieth century song composers. Poulenc, Britten and Finzi all cut their teeth writing miniature forms before turning to larger scale works later in life, and all explored thoroughly individual musical languages while painting the finest words with abundantly colourful accompaniments. Poulenc's greatest vocal work, a cycle in the line of Winterreise or Dichterliebe, stands alongside one of Britten's most personal works, one which culminates in a song extolling the perfection and immortality of love. Spence comes to Leeds Lieder fresh from triumphant recent appearances at New York's Metropolitan Opera, the Royal Opera House and recitals at Wigmore Hall and the Edinburgh Festival.
