Simon Wallfisch – Baritone,
Nigel Foster – Piano
Kevin Moore – Speaker

Baritone Simon Wallfisch (“There was an energy and buzz every time Simon Wallfisch was on stage”: Opera Today) and Nigel Foster (piano) perform Schubert’s extraordinary song-cycle Winterreise, interspersed with readings from the diary of Derek Jarman, charting his winter journey from his diagnosis as HIV positive in 1986 to his death from AIDS in 1994. This will be a very moving and emotional combination of arguably the greatest song cycle ever written, with the words of one of the true Renaissance men of the twentieth century; film director, artist, author, gardener, stage designer and diarist. Performed with Kevin Moore (speaker), Prior Anthony in World Without End TV series, Melchior in The Inn at Lydda at Wanamaker Playhouse.
