The 24 presents an all-twentieth-century programme for its second concert of our 2021/22 season. Vaughan Williams’s Three Shakespeare Songs, which sets lines from The Tempest and A Midsummer Night's Dream, is a firm favourite with audiences. German composer Clytus Gottwald’s bewitching arrangement of Debussy’s sorrowful song Les Angélus follows Jean Francaix’s little-known work for chorus and organ Deux Motets. York-based pianist Hilary Suckling joins the choir in Roderick Williams’s enchanting arrangement of the slow movement from Ravel’s Piano Concerto, and the programme closes with Germaine Tailleferre’s lyrical solo piano piece Chiens and some 1970s French jazz!
