Thursday evening we went to a private recital given by members of the Royal Academy Song Circle. Singers Rachel Kelly (mezzo-soprano), Rupert Charlesworth (tenor) and Ross Ramgobin (baritone) were accompanied (and coached) by Edwige Herchenroder.
An impressive and involving programme of French song saw all three singers, performing from memory with find French diction, give memorable performances. Charlesworth sang Faure's Poeme d'un jour, Duparc's Soupir, Ravel's Epigrammes de Clement Marot and Lili Boulanger's Vous ma've regarde. Kelly sang Cecile Chaminade's Mots d'amour and Malgre nous, Debussy's La flute de Pan and La chevelure and Poulenc's Les chemins de l'amour. Ramgobin sang the Ravel Histoire naturelles.
