WHEN I WAS ONE AND TWENTY

When I was one-and-twenty I heard a wise man say,
“Give crowns and pounds and guineas but not your heart away;
Give pearls away and rubies but keep your fancy free.”
But I was one-and-twenty, no use to talk to me.

— AE Housman

Young love takes many forms. Journey through the hopeful innocence of first love to the heartbreak of unrequited love and the wisdom gained through experience in a concert featuring some of the most beautiful music ever written. Directed by Samling Artists Miranda Wright and Ian Tindale, this semi-staged performance features some of the North East’s most talented young singers.

To include music by Mozart, Schubert, Schumann, Fauré and Britten, accompanied by Samling Artist pianist Ian Tindale.
