This concert, of dramatic Czech songs, is in expert hands with Nicky Spence, who garnered huge critical acclaim for his role of Nikita in Janáček’s The House of the Dead at the Royal Opera House in Spring 2018, and Slovenian mezzo Barbara Kozelj who, despite making her debut only five years ago, has rocketed to the top of her profession, making her BBC Proms debut last summer.

The most striking performance comes from Nicky Spence; he heartbreakingly captures Janáček’s faith in humanity even at its darkest, and it will linger long after the curtain has fallen.” The Guardian

The vocal star of the show was Barbara Kozelj. She is certainly a singer to watch in the future.” Classical Source
