Baritone Dominic Sedgwick and soprano Jacquelyn Stucker are two Jette Parker Young Artists at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. Together with pianist Ceri Owen they bring the Cambridge Song Festival to a close with a performance of the second book of Hugo Wolf’s exquisite Italian Songbook. A collection of vivid and colourful miniatures capturing the intensities of human life, love, and experience, the rest of the programme takes inspiration from Wolf's settings of Italian folk texts, exploring themes of folklore and tradition in songs by Barber, Berg, Butterworth, and Debussy.

When the lad for longing sighs
On the idle hill of summer
