Gweneth Ann Rand performs Messiaen Song Cycles

Gweneth Ann Rand returns to the Aldeburgh Festival next year for a series of concerts featuring all of Messiaen’s works for soprano. She is joined by pianists Simon Lepper and Allyson Devenish. 

Each concert will be enhanced by projections of the dazzling artwork by Rachel Jones, the British visual artist acclaimed for her “captivating, jitteringly electric” work.

Additionally, these concerts will showcase some of the outstanding Britten Pears Young Artists, who will perform more French songs.

“Rand’s sumptuous voice, technically brilliant, verbally agile and expressive… The concert turned out to be a contender for the fast-approaching best-of-year list.”

“Rand’s voice is plush and warm… beautifully sustained, sculpted with superb vocal control.”
