28 July 2019 JANET SHELL presents Ravishingly Romantic and Radiantly Renaissance

Playing tracks by

Bruno Walter/Columbia Symphony Orchestra, Sospiri/Christopher Watson & John Duggan, Carlo Bergonzi/RCA Italiana Opera Orchestra/Fausta Cleva, Choir of New College Oxford/Edward Higginbottom, various singers and more.

A programme dedicated to the great works of these two seemingly opposed eras. One was influenced by the use of music for religious ends but it included the birth of opera; the other was a reaction against the classical constraints of form and elegance - breaking down the barriers and urging music to have a great emotional outpouring using every instrument available. Yet both eras found a connection to the human conditions that speak across the centuries
