RNCM Day of Song

Songs Original

This year’s Day of Song showcases originality in song, exploring the innovative composers who broke new ground in the galvanisation of poetry and music. We explore Schumann’s Liederjahr (‘Year of Song’) and music by his contemporaries, alongside exciting new commissions; David Owen Norris presents a stimulating lecture-recital exploring Thomas Hardy in song; and RNCM tutors and internationally-renowned singers Paul Nilon and Louise Winter perform alongside students in a theatrical presentation of Janáček’s intimate masterpiece The Diary of One Who Disappeared.
Distinguished tenor Christoph Prégardien closes the day, performing Schubert’s masterpiece Winterreise in a magical arrangement for chamber ensemble.
