From Paris to London

The concert begins with Francis Poulenc's 'Banalités', a series of songs on poems by Guillaume Apollinaire, including the exuberant 'Voyage à Paris'.

Marking the centenary of Claude Debussy's death, hear his 'Ariettes Oubliées' set to poetry by Paul Verlaine, written during his turbulent stay in London, with Arthur Rimbaud.

Acclaimed soprano Raphaela Papadakis and pianist Sholto Kynoch complete the programme with a series of songs by Erik Satie and Poulenc that tread a fine line between classical and cabaret, and celebrate these two exhilarating cities.
