Angela Hewitt’s French Series

Music, Classical and opera
Angela Hewitt's French Series turns to the heady harmonies and elevated aesthetics of fin-de-siècle Paris for a programme glorious in its diversity and expressive contrasts, from the nostalgic yearning of Reynaldo Hahn's matchless 'A Chloris' to Debussy's erotically charged 'Chansons de Bilitis'. She is joined by Québécoise soprano Karina Gauvin, winner of the Maggie Teyte Memorial Prize, and Andrea Oliva, principal flute of the Orchestra of the Accademia di Santa Cecilia in Rome.
