In the Still of the Night

Home Event In the Still of the Night
A Lunchtime Concert with Catherine Greenwell (Soprano) and Michael Cockerham (Piano)

Let us dream! It is the hour…This recital brings together songs from across the centuries that are reflections on the power of reverie and the nature of dreams. From Handel’s salutation to Morpheus the god of sleep, through the late romantic fantasies of Liszt, Strauss and Hahn, to the silver screen glamour of nights with Ivor Novello and Cole Porter, the music will celebrate our fascination with dreaming and the resurrection of the morning. This recital is presented by Wells based soprano Catherine Greenwell, fellow of Trinity College, London for music performance and Michael Cockerham, former director of music at the Royal High School in Bath and current Trinity College examiner and chairman of the RSCM Bristol and Swindon area.
