A concert for the Keats-Shelley House on Thursday 28 May at 19.30 at S. Maria del Priorato in the Aventino district of Rome.
A rare opportunity to experience a suite of songs which together attest to the influence of Italy on the minds and hearts of the Romantic poets. All proceeds will go directly to the Keats-Shelley House, an internationally treasured museum and library that receives no public funding from either the UK or from Italy.
Composers include Strauss, Mendelssohn, Wolf, Quilter, Ireland, Britten, Respighi, and Parry, whose songs celebrate the works of Keats, Shelley, Byron and others.
Tickets cost €30 for the production, or €45 for a ticket that also includes a VIP reception held in the company of the Prince and Grand Master of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta, and international dignitaries.
Chris Elliott: tenor, Ingrid Sawers: pianist.
