Andrey Lebedev, guitar; Lotte Betts-Dean, mezzo-soprano

Both these exciting artists are already much travelled, and not only because they hail from Australia but have now settled in London, although Andrey moved there shortly after his birth in Moscow. The pairing of Mezzo-Soprano with Guitar has produced a programme full of exquisite delicacy, combining music from 4 composers all of whom had an exceptional innate sympathy with both guitar and the voice. Both artists share a passion for breaking boundaries across repertoire, which is both refreshing and inspirational. They have found connections such as between Britten and Dowland, and Brett Dean is without doubt one of the most successful and accessible of today’s composers.
