Leading contemporary artist Lotte Betts-Dean – whose repertoire spans Monteverdi to Kurt Weill and Purcell to Joni Mitchell, is joined by BBC New Generation Artist Ryan Corbett for a Red House Recital like no other.

This eclectic and relaxed programme features a range of music spanning centuries and styles from French Renaissance and German Lieder to 20th-century cabaret and new covers of experimental art rock.

In the special space of the Library, which over the decades has seen so much new music shared among friends, we are delighted to present an evening that should not be missed.

The recital will last 60 minutes, with 30 minutes afterwards to meet the artists and have a glass of bubbles.

Her tone was at once pure and thick with power; with expressive gestures flowing from her arms and face, she appeared to place herself entirely and unconditionally into the music.
