Roderick Williams presents a handpicked programme of heartrendingly beautiful songs from a repertoire in which he has become acknowledged as a world leader.

“Roderick Williams is a national treasure. Acutely responsive to the sound and meaning of words, his approach to the English Romantic song repertoire is revelatory. Susie Allan lingers tellingly over an important detail in the piano writing just at the right moment to complement Williams’ exquisite interpretation.”
