For the third recital, soprano Alexandra Lowe and pianist Patrick Milne, both former members of the highly prestigious Jette Parker Young Artists Programme at the Royal Opera House, will perform excerpts from their recent CD ‘Le Voyage’. Their programme focuses on music from the French ‘Romantic’ song repertoire, with text inspired by Greece, the Middle East and Alexandra’s country of birth, Spain. Highlights include Ravel’s Cinq mélodies populaires grecques performed in Greek, Debussy’s Chansons de Bilitis, Bizet’s fiery ‘Ouvre ton coeur’, and an uplifting pairing of two songs by Pauline Viardot, ‘Les filles de Cadix’ and ‘Madrid’.
