Newcastle Music Festival presents Anna Fraser (soprano) and Michael Bell (piano) as they bring you examples of the mystical brilliance of a fascinating program of compositions, from Hildegard von Bingen, the short-lived talent of Lili Boulanger, to the eccentricity of Tim Hansen. This concert addresses the human concerns of life and death, against the monumental backdrop of the World Premiere of Ross Fiddes’ and Derek Dowding’s “Toasting Mother Earth”, an anthem of praise and a warning of destruction.
