The Karaka Collective is a new ensemble of old friends: pianist and music director Lindy Tennent-Brown, mezzosoprano Wendy Dawn Thompson and baritone James Harrison. All three have glittering international careers in Europe. The concert draws on music from across a wide range of genres, all reflecting on the themes of love discovered, understood, toyed with, relished, released and, occasionally, discarded. The programme contains two operatic duets – a funny, teasing scene between Sid and Nancy from Britten’s Albert Herring, and a gripping marital dispute between the Duke and Duchess of Nottingham in Roberto Devereux by Donizetti – and concludes with a pair of lovers reuniting after attempting to live apart in ‘I’d give it all for you’ from Jason Robert Brown’s Songs for a New World (1995). There’s something to suit every taste, performed in a variety of languages, and introduced by the performers.
