Young Artists Lunchtime Recital - James Newby on Friday 25th May 2018

24-year-old British baritone James Newby is the winner of the 2016 Kathleen Ferrier Award. Other recent awards include: the Wigmore Hall/ Independent Opera Voice Fellowship, and the Richard Tauber Prize and
Third Prize at the Wigmore Hall/Kohn International Song Competition. In 2017 he was awarded the Trinity Gold Medal by the board of Trinity Laban Conservatoire and the John Christie Award by Glyndebourne.

For today’s recital of spring-inspired songs by Schubert, Wolf, Beethoven and Britten, James is joined by pianist Joseph Middleton who specialises in the art of song accompaniment and chamber music. He was the first accompanist to receive the Young Artist Award at the 2017 Royal Philharmonic Society Awards.
