‘A natural and expressive communicator… He imbued each song with myriad colourful nuances, his rich, burnished baritone lovely throughout the evening.’
The New York Times‘People often ask me why I always seem so cheerful,’ says the British baritone Roderick Williams, ‘and I just say to them, why shouldn’t I be? I’m singing wonderful music’. His passion for English song is the inspiration between this musical exploration of the landscape and language of Thomas Hardy – featuring songs by Britten, Finzi, Holst and many more.
