RNCM Day of Song

Only the Wanderer

The image of the lone traveller has long inspired many of the great poets and composers of song, from Ralph Vaughan Williams’ vagabond finding joy in a life on the open road, to the figure of the tragic, love-scorned wanderer seeking escape from the world in Mahler’s Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen. Join us for a day of brilliant recitals and wonderful repertoire. We welcome celebrated British baritone Roderick Williams as special guest, who will give a recital featuring George Butterworth’s A Shropshire Lad, Ravel’s colourful Don Quichotte à Dulcinée and Ralph Vaughan Williams’ enigmatic Songs of Travel.
