Programme to include mélodies by composers from Fauré and Debussy to Gounod, Chabrier and Saint-Saëns


The fourth, 'expanded' year of the Wigmore French Song Exchange returns with three recitals: two Wigmore Hall lunchtimes and a performance at the iconic Salle Cortot in Paris.

Devised by Dame Felicity Lott and François Le Roux, two great exponents of the mélodie, the Wigmore French Song Exchange offers eight gifted singers – and for the first time three pianists, guided by the celebrated Sebastian Wybrew – a year of coaching from their mentors and guest teachers, culminating in three showcase performances. This year, the course also explores English song, which will form part of these special concerts

In this first concert of the series, the singers take on keystones of the genre and lesser-known gems, some receiving their first performance at the Hall. For the first time the project welcomes pianists, who also receive a year’s worth of coaching before the showcase performances, as well as delving into English song for a true ‘song exchange’.
