From fables and Greek myths to tales of the extraordinary and the everyday, songs have always been a supremely powerful way to tell stories. Pianist and presenter Dominic Harlan is joined by two singers for a stunningly original concert that includes music by Schubert, Rachmaninov, Brahms and Ives.

By turns hilarious, horrifying, moving and profound, this sixty minute concert guides novices into the world of each song while challenging connoisseurs to find new and unexpected twists in familiar repertoire.

When Yesterday we Met... is a thrilling, hands-on show that pays homage to classical music’s most notoriously under-represented genre, the Art song.
