SHCS Presents: Ian Bostridge, tenor & Julius Drake, piano

Acclaimed tenor Ian Bostridge, renowned for his lyric gifts and “instinct for conveying meaning and emotion with disarming clarity” (The Guardian), performs music set to profound texts from his native England. This signature program features a kaleidoscope of composers inspired by William Shakespeare alongside Bostridge’s heartfelt rendition of Britten’s transcendent Holy Sonnets, with texts by poet John Donne. Master collaborative pianist Julius Drake joins for this imaginative collection.
