Soprano Louise Kemény explores the world of the garden in this early evening concert

Doors 17:15, concert 17:30, tickets £5, £3 concessions & Foundling Friends

The garden – as a place of beauty, a metaphor, or an idea – has long inspired composers, poets and painters. From the natural perfection of Paradise to the impressionistic haze of an oriental landscape, Louise Kemény presents the world of the garden through the work of Fauré, Debussy and Strauss, alongside a collection of English folk songs. Accompanied by pianist Ed Liddall.
