Recent winner of BBC Music Magazine’s ‘Personality of the Year’ Award and star of the Sky Arts’ TV show Anyone Can Sing, Nicky Spence is joined by the contralto Jess Dandy (‘stunning …. a name to watch’, The Times) for a recital that ranges from Schumann’s most passionate song cycle to Janacek’s hauntingly beautiful The Diary of One Who Disappeared – a tale of obsessive love and desire.
Hailed by The Daily Telegraph as ‘a voice of real distinction,’ Nicky Spence is 'one of our brightest young tenors.’ An artist of great integrity, his unique skills as a singing-actor and the rare honesty of his musicianship have earned him a place at the top of the profession.
