The Earth Laughs In Flowers
Music Room, Royal Pavilion, Brighton
Celebrate the start of spring with a joyful evening of words and music, with famed mezzo-soprano Pippa Dames-Longworth and Nicholas Bosworth at the piano.
Enjoy pieces by Handel, Fauré, Strauss, Rachmaninov, Joyce Grenfell and Rudyard Kipling, among others, all in the perfect setting of the Pavilion’s lavish Music Room. During the interval, enjoy a glass of chilled wine in the dazzling State Banqueting Room.
Pippa Dames-Longworth’s career has taken her throughout Europe and beyond. She has sung for The Royal Opera House, English National Opera, Paris Opera, SkyArts, the BBC Proms and the Edinburgh International Festival.
She said: “This recital is about flowers, nature, gardens, love and the arrival of spring. As winter draws to a close I wanted to create a fun programme, which includes music by 14 composers written over three centuries, and words by some of our best-loved poets. There will be songs that people know well and other music that will be a discovery for the audience. The name of the show is taken from Ralph Waldo Emerson’s poem Hamatreya, in which it suggests nature’s supremacy over Man.”
“ Irresistible gripping theatre, with a vigorously projected performance from Pippa Dames-Longworth” The Times
“ Spellbinding… my annual treat” Peter Florence, Director, Hay-on-Wye Festival
“ Long spans of concentrated and beautiful singing by Pippa Dames-Longworth” The Independent
