QUIDAM RECITAL: Whispering Trees
February 23 @ 7:30 pm
The Whispering Trees – A Winter Recital
A very beautiful and atmospheric recital by Alex Pullinger, countertenor, and Andrew Charity on piano, with visual elements by Christian Hey. The performance will be staged by candlelight with scenic elements. It depicts a singer who has disappeared during his previous recital. We first encounter him lost in a mysterious wood, cold and alone, gradually forgetting his origins and clinging to music in the darkness. By the end, he has transcended the human realm to become an ethereal Jack Frost figure.
The programme will include songs by Purcell, Britten, Ravel, Quilter, Dowland, Warlock and Vaughan Williams.
Alex Pullinger is a freelance countertenor and singing teacher, based in London. Andrew Charity is a freelance conductor/pianist and singing teacher/coach. He is also resident conductor of madrigal singing at RADA.
