Matthew Rose, Britain’s leading bass singer, brings together a group of distinguished musicians to perform music for voice composed in the last five years and commissioned by the Michael Cuddigan Trust. This concert will include two world premieres, the new work by David Bruce and the full cycle of Kate Whitley’s settings of the Charlotte Mew poems. These will complement Richard Strauss’s hauntingly beautiful Metamorphosen written for string septet and widely regarded as his finest work.

Matthew Rose is among the most musically illuminating of the new generation of basses, alert and perceptive in performance.” The Guardian
