Tonight at 8.00pm, soprano soloist Zita Syme will perform her forthcoming programme
‘A Bouquet of Song’
Concert time: 30 minutes.
The programme is centred mainly around flowers but within this theme ideas of love, life and death are also present.
At the top of my programme, Zita has written:
“My programme is inspired by two handwritten manuscripts that I discovered; a letter in which the composer Liza Lehmann thanks an admirer for ‘the lovely flowers you so kindly brought me the other day…’ and an unpublished song, “Gardens of the West” by Bantock.”
