Songs by Brahms, Grainger and Grieg,

Clare Booth, soprano

Christopher Glynn, piano

Folk stories inspire great songs. Norwegian Edvard Grieg’s great Haugtussa cycle deals with all the traditional aspects of folksong – love, loss and betrayal. Grieg inspired Percy Grainger to turn to folksong for his musical inspiration and many of Brahms’s finest songs are based on German folksong. Claire Booth is internationally renowned for her committed performances of an extraordinary breadth of repertoire.
