Bliss Concert: Mouriz, Farnsworth and Middleton

by Rachel Smith

jm cm mf1The next recital in our Bliss Concert Series, on Saturday 2nd May, will feature a trio of world-class musicians.

Alumni of London’s Royal Academy of Music, mezzo soprano Clara Mouriz, baritone Marcus Farnsworth and pianist Joseph Middleton have recently been described in the Telegraph as ‘the crème de la crème of young British-based musical talent’. The review also claimed: ‘there was no mistaking the exceptional musicality – every phrase was coloured and shaped, everything emotionally felt’.

These three outstanding musicians will join forces again at 8pm on Saturday 2nd May for a performance in Pembroke’s beautiful Old Library. Together they will present a programme of solos and duets entitled ‘Licht und Liebe’, which includes songs about Italy, Spain, France, as well as lieder by Schubert that explore his response to poet’s writing about the sun.

The full programme can be found on Bliss Concert Series webpages.

Tickets cost £15, (£10 for College members and £5 for students). Tickets are available online, from the Porters’ Lodge or on the door.
