Nocturnes album cover Format: Digital download
Label: Pro Studio Masters
Release date: March 2015

Since the beginning of time, the night and its mysteries have inspired poets and musicians. Rupert Charlesworth, one of the UK’s most promising young tenors, is joined at the piano by Edwige Herchenroder for this recital that includes English songs, French melodies and Lieder, all about the nighttime. Ranging from the known (Schubert, Brahms, Fauré) to the lesser known (Bax, Finzi, Berkeley), Charlesworth and Herchenroder embark on this fascinating nocturnal promenade through diverse aesthetics, troubling atmospheres and profoundly contrasting emotions; their ode to the night. Includes no. 4. 'Eyes look into the well' and no. 5. 'Carry her over the water' from 'Five Poems' op. 53, and no. 5. 'Silver' from 'Five Poems' op. 26. (Synopsis by Pro Studio Masters)

Performed by Rupert Charlesworth (tenor) & Edwige Herchenroder (piano)
