SongEasel

SongEasel

SongEasel was established in 2018 to fill South East London with song. Each series holds diversity and inclusivity at the heart of its mission, in harmony with showcasing exceptional musical quality at an international standard.

The Wanderlust Series 2020

The Wanderlust Series presented songs celebrating both the rewards of roaming in nature and the earnest world of inner, conflicting personal journeys. Epitomising the nineteenth-century concept of Wanderlust, Wilhelm Müller’s poetry transports us from youthful exuberance to the brink of humanity’s patience, and his work was a major influence on other significant poets.

For Schubert’s complete song cycles at Blackheath Halls, I was joined by three exceptional artists: Julien Van Mellaerts; Francesca Chiejina and Stephan Loges. Coffee concerts in St Laurence Church, Catford brought a wealth of international talent into the area and focussed on collaborative song with leading instrumentalists.
