Wigmore Hall concert: Brett Dean composer; Armida Quartet; Lotte Betts-Dean mezzo-soprano
January 22, 2024 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Returning to perform Australian composer Brett Dean’s piece based on letters written by Mary Stuart are the work’s original performers from Oxford in 2021. The piece perfectly matches Schumann’s settings of her poetic texts, and indeed Janáček’s piece based on his own letters.
