The rapidly rising Australian baritone Duncan Rock presents a programme that reflects on times of war, including songs written by a composer who both fought and died in the Great War, George Butterworth. The centrepiece is Butterworth’s setting of A E Housman’s A Shropshire Lad with other repertoire by Gerald Finzi and Ned Rorem. Duncan Rock is accompanied by Joseph Middleton recently described by Gramophone magazine as “outstanding - his reputation as a rising star among accompanists is richly deserved”.

Duncan Rock studied at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and subsequently at the National Opera Studio. Amongst a long list of awards he was the winner of the 2012 Chilcott Award - made to support a ‘major young artist with the potential to make an international impact’; he was a Jerwood Young Artist at the Glyndebourne Festival, and the recipient of 2010 John Christie Award, given by the Worshipful Company of Musicians. The 2017/18 season includes his debut at the Metropolitan Opera, his return to Covent Garden, a new production for the Teatro Réal in Madrid and concert performances of Wonderful Town with the LSO under Sir Simon Rattle.
