Mark Padmore

Mark Padmore sang – beautifully – on Saturday morning in Aldeburgh church:  Schumann’s Eichendorff Liederkreis, melancholy and romantic, followed after the interval by Fauré’s La Bonne Chanson, based on poems written by Verlaine, when he fell in love (but he was homosexual) with the 14-year old half-sister of Charles de Silvry, and ending with folk songs set to music by Benjamin Britten.   Not a bad way to spend a Saturday morning.

    Sounds wonderful.
    Have you been to Sam Fogg’s restaurant/bar (East Coast) in Aldeburgh?
    We were very impressed when we went.
