Heimliches Lieben by Franz Schubert

Tre Sonetti di Petrarca by Franz Liszt

Pace non trovo

Benedetto sia 'l giorno

I vidi in terra

Ihr Glocken von Marling by Franz Liszt

The Cuckoo and the Owl (from Love’s Labours Lost) 

Take o take those lips away (from Measure for Measure) 

Come to Dust (from Cymbeline)

Porgy & Bess - Summertime by Gershwin

 

The Holmes-Colquhoun duo, making their St Martin-in-the-Fields debut, place Liszt at the heart of their recital as they explore his Tre Sonetti di Petrarca. Arias in all but name, the songs are packed with Petrarch's characteristic dichotomies of love and echoed Liszt’s lucious and evocatively dramatic writing with stratospheric climaxes and preciously intimate moments.

Inspired by the dramatic setting of Petrarch’s works the duo then move to Italian composer and U.S. citizen Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco’s charming Shakespeare Songs, completed in 1925. This intimate and varied setting captures the life in Shakespeare’s writing with a selection of pieces inspired by Cymbeline, Measure for Measure and Twelfth Night.
