Acclaimed duo Lotte Betts-Dean (mezzo-soprano) and Andrey Lebedev (guitar) give the first recital of the City Music Foundation 2018-19 Lunchtime Recital Series at St Bartholomew the Less.
Alongside flourishing solo careers, Lotte and Andrey perform together regularly around the UK and beyond. Performing at the 2017 Buxton International Festival, the duo were hailed by The Guardian as “an unexpected highlight” and praised for their “irrepressible sense of drama and extraordinary self-assurance”. In recent seasons they have also performed at Gower Festival, Lewes Festival of Song, Brickwall Music Society, and toured their native Australia taking in Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Canberra, and Mildura Summer Festival.
Their programme will include songs by Dowland, Britten, Brett Dean, Manuel de Falla, as well as some foot-tapping ‘bossa nova’ tunes.
