Songs by Ravel and Debussy, together with Barber’s Hermit Songs and Strauss’s Ophelia Lieder; solo piano transcriptions of songs by Liszt; and a world premiere of a new arrangement by Tom Poster.

The Prince Consort bring art song and jazz together to shine a fresh light on classical works, as well as creating new music and combinations. Four terrific singers, pianist Alisdair Hogarth and jazz legend Jason Rebello perform three fascinating programmes in a unique song series.

The second song programme is on Monday 17 September at 3pm, and the third on Tuesday 18 September at 3pm

This first programme explores the influence of jazz and improvised music on classical song and vice versa in a wildly eclectic journey from France to the USA, taking in solo piano repertoire on the way.

Claire Booth gives an unforgettably intense performance'

Prestonkirk Parish Church, East Linton

The grassy hill beside the River Tyne on which this historic church stands has been a place of worship since at least the twelfth century.

Indeed, its origins may go back far into the Dark Ages, to the time of St Baldred, whose name is associated with an ancient well beside the river close to this church and to a whirl, or pool, in the river itself.

The present church is a fascinating amalgam of different architectural periods. The main body is Georgian - built in 1770 on the site of the nave of the earlier mediaeval church. Of that only the fine chancel survives, while the bell tower is 17th Century.
