A Housman Dichterliebe

Gareth Brynmor John – Baritone, Nigel Foster – Piano
Speaker – Gabirel Woolf

Schumann’s great cycle of love and loss, combined with readings of A E Housman’s later poems, which reveal his struggles with his sexuality that he could never express. These poems are less well known than his Shropshire Lad, but are arguably more intense and personal. Sung by baritone Gareth Brynmor John, winner of the Kathleen Ferrier Award 2010, with speaker Gabriel Woolf, best known for his portrayal of Sir Percival in the 1953 film Knights of the Round Table, and Sutekh in the 1975 Doctor Who serial Pyramids of Mars, and Nigel Foster (piano).
