Shakespeare in Song : Taylor Wilson sings the Bard at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, 18th August, 12 noon
A rich programme of songs, from Purcell to Dankworth, journeys through the revered words and lyrics of The Bard.
Ranging from Baroque to Jazz, they create the context for international performer and recording artist, Taylor Wilson, to showcase her impressively versatile mezzo-soprano voice.
Songs by Purcell, Quilter, Finzi, Dring, Dankworth, and more, provide a musically exciting journey through the revered words and lyrics of The Bard. International pianist, Neil Metcalfe, and Brian Branford, on double bass, provide the accompaniment.
“Taylor Wilson’s superb acting and sumptuous mezzo enthralled me from start to finish…definitely one to watch” Bachtrack
“Something really magical happens when a piece of music finds a performer whose talent matches it to perfection” Alan Cooper, writer for Sound Festival & The Herald
