Buxton International Festival 2019 - Recital with Bethan Langford

  • St John's Church, Buxton (map)

Bethan Langford (mezzo-soprano) and Keval Shah (piano) make their debut at the Buxton International Festival with a programme celebrating the life and times of Georgiana Cavendish, as well as reflecting on her legacy as a writer and feminist icon. Music by her contemporaries Mozart and Haydn, including the latter’s Arianna a Naxos, rubs shoulders with American and British songs setting texts by major female poets including Emily Dickinson, Edna St Vincent Millay and Sara Teasdale. This recital also includes the UK premiere of songs from ‘Through the Guarded Gate’, a 2018 cycle by Juliana Hall, setting texts by Margaret Widdemer on the subject of women’s suffrage.

Online booking for this event, on the Buxton Festival website, opens at 10:00 on 1 April 2019.
