Music & The Speech of Angels

24 November 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Soprano Louise Kemény and pianist Edward Liddall explore the musical depictions of angels

Taking inspiration from the angels in the paintings of Joseph Highmore, this concert explores the endless fascination with angelic characters by poets and musicians across the centuries. Their programme ranges from the power and poise of Handel’s heavenly hosts to James Macmillan’s beautiful piano work, Angel, offering an evening of heartfelt, timeless music.

Louise Kemény graduated with distinction from the Opera School at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, where she was awarded the Ian Smith of Stornoway Prize for Opera. Her past roles include Barbarina in Le nozze di Figaro for Dutch National Opera, Teofane in Ottone for English Touring Opera, and her Glyndebourne Festival Opera debut as First Noble Orphan in Richard Jones’ acclaimed production of Der Rosenkavalier. In recital Kemény has performed at prestigious venues including St John’s Smith Square, Wigmore Hall, St George’s Hannover Square and the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge.
