Natalie Clein cello

Ruby Hughes soprano

Julius Drake piano

Soprano Ruby Hughes was a cellist herself, and loves to sing with the 'warm, expressive, very human voice' of the cello, here played by Natalie Clein, alongside distinguished pianist Julius Drake. This consummate and curious trio have come together to curate an intriguing exploration of these sonorities, from Tavener's starkly expressive Akhmatova Songs to Schubert's exhilarating Auf dem Strom, Turnage's sensuous lullaby to Janacek's enchanting Pohadka. Alongside Bach's sacred arias with cello obbligato, is John Cage's wittily percussive song for voice and closed piano.
