An intimate song recital in the Library at The Red House, celebrating the songs of Benjamin Britten, his influence Franz Schubert, and more.

The recital will last 60 minutes, with 30 minutes afterwards to meet the artists and have a glass of bubbles, in this special venue where so much of Britten’s music was developed and shared among friends.
