Following their acclaimed performance of ‘The Sea’ in 2015, Mark Padmore, Roderick Williams and Julius Drake return to Middle Temple Hall to present their new programme of music and readings about life’s journey from childhood to old age. The wide ranging and diverse repertoire will include pieces by Shakespeare, Schubert, Hardy, Schumann, Lewis Carroll, Britten, Emily Dickinson and Haydn.

It’s hard to think of a singer more seriously dedicated to his art than
the tenor Mark Padmore.” The Telegraph

Roderick Williams communicated with no less immediacy and honesty,
his beautifully appealing voice speaking with unaffected sincerity and
finely defined feeling.” Opera Today
