Tonight’s Song Futures recital features the first of a number of works heard this year by our Associate Composer Cheryl Frances-Hoad. Her One Life Stand, performed tonight by mezzo-soprano Fleur Barron, was written in 2011 as a companion piece to Schumann’s Frauenliebe (see Event 39). It sets texts by Sophie Hannah that ‘portray a modern woman’s loves and life’ and has been performed many times since its composition. With pianist Natalie Burch, baritone Dominic Sedgwick makes his first Festival appearance, with songs by Finzi, Britten and Madeleine Dring.
