Once again, in conjunction with Live Music Now Scotland and Paxton House, we see the return of the extremely successful free one-hour taster concerts ‘Music at Paxton…Plus’ starting at 2.30pm on Sunday 14 June.
Husband and wife duo Phil Gault (baritone) and Claire Haslin (piano) perform, amongst others, the lovely ‘Dichterliebe’ (A Poet’s Love) song cycle by Schumann.
Welsh baritone Phil Gault has performed internationally, in roles ranging from the Count (Il Nozze di Figaro), Dandini (La Cenerentola), and Tarquinius (The Rape of Lucretia), to the eponymous Don Giovanni, King Roger, and even Carmen (in the critically acclaimed all-male CarMen).
“… A singer to watch… he has an excellent voice, strong, even and flexible with a rich tone and an apparently effortless gift of characterisation… he brought something special to the heartbreaking final verses.”
You can make an afternoon of it with Sunday lunch beforehand in the stables Tearoom or afternoon tea afterwards. Doors open 2pm. This is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy a little Opera for free on a sunny Sunday afternoon – suitable for all the family.
