Nadine Benjamin and Nicole Panizza released their CD of Emily Dickinson settings, ‘Emergence’, in 2019 to great acclaim. The focal point of today’s programme, as on that recording, is Aaron Copland’s Twelve Poems of Emily Dickinson, written in 1949/50. These richly evocative songs are complemented by nature-related Dickinson poems set to music by other American composers including André Previn and Juliana Hall, and selections from Julian Phillip’s 2007 cycle An Amherst Bestiary.

Ahead of this event there is a free pre-concert talk for ticket holders (13:30-14:15).
