Dr Nicholas Clark discusses the life and work of Peter Pears, co-founder of the Aldeburgh Festival and one of its most celebrated artistic figures.

Held on Pears’ birthday, 22 June, the session will include a consideration of various roles and repertoire for which Pears was famous and which have also been part of this year’s Aldeburgh Festival: Schumann’s Dichterliebe, Schubert’s Winterreise, and the music of Purcell and Britten.
