Saturday 15 March 2014 - Saturday 22 March 2014Aldeburgh English Song Project
John Woolrich • Peter Wiegold composers • Huw Watkins composer/pianist • Lavinia Greenlaw poet • Richard Edgar Wilson voice
Begun as a Britten Centenary project in 2013, this legacy is carried forward in a course for composers and poets which starts at Aldeburgh and will continue with events at the Brunel Institute of Composition led by Peter Wiegold in a showcase at Aldeburgh and London in July. It is led by John Woolrich, the poet Lavinia Greenlaw and the pianist/composer Richard Edgar Wilson. The brief will be to create new settings for voice and piano and the course will study Britten's and others' musical response to a text, the technical demands of voice and keyboard as well as providing a framework for the writing of new work.

What our past alumni say:
‘I have never been anywhere else where I have learnt so much in so short a time and have come away refreshed and itching to make music.’
‘The BPP is a great opportunity to work with top musicians in a friendly and supportive environment. ... The genuine love of music embedded in everyone here is truly inspirational and reminds us why we want to be musicians.’
‘Britten–Pears is a very positive experience. From the stunning location to the excellent tuition it is an opportunity young musicians should not miss out on.’
‘The Programme is a great symposium where composers, performers and tutors can work closely together in an inspirational environment.’
