Winner of the Kathleen Ferrier Prize, British tenor Alessandro Fisher opens our final BBC New Generation Artist recital, with a sublime programme of song with guitar played by the lauded young Franco-Spanish guitarist Thibaut Garcia. The Renaissance melancholy of Dowland is perfectly pitched against this virtuosic and flamboyant Spanish repertoire. The multi-award winning Quatuor Arod join Garcia for this rare collaboration in the elegant Quintet No 5, which Boccherini composed for guitar and strings, and concludes with a complete contrast of sound worlds with Bartók’s dramatic fourth String Quartet.
