CMF Artists to perform at Wigmore Hall
Lotte Betts-Dean (mezzo-soprano) and Andrey Lebedev (guitar) are to perform at Wigmore Hall on Saturday 9th February in a showcase presented by the Musicians’ Company.
This showcase concert presents the recipients of the Company’s inaugural New Elizabethan Award, a biennial award for classical guitarists and lutenists for the performance of solo and/or ensemble music, written by composers from the two Elizabethan ages.
In July 2018, Lotte & Andrey became the first ensemble to receive the award after a tightly-fought live competition judged by a panel including Dame Emma Kirkby (soprano), John Gilhooly (Artistic Director, Wigmore Hall), and Craig Ogden (guitarist). The other recipient was guitarist Jesse Flowers.
Lotte & Andrey will perform Britten’s Song from the Chinese, as well as music by Brett Dean based on his celebrated opera Hamlet.
