Johnny Herford baritone; James Baillieu piano

Storytelling is central to the work of Judith Weir, one of Britainís finest contemporary composers.

Johnny Herford and James Baillieu enter Weirís bold soundworld, exploring the confrontations and dramatic twists and turns of her Songs from the Exotic and other landmark compositions.

Their programme is crowned by Ravelís Histoires naturelles, witty settings of verse about the individual characteristics of five animals.
