Presented by Saffron Hall

Widely held to be one of the finest singers in the world, Bryn Terfel is almost as famous for his acting as for his singing, bringing depth of character and emotion to every performance.

In what is set to be a stunning recital, Bryn Terfel performs a sumptuous selection of music, from Schumann, Debussy and Wagner to numbers by Ivor Novello and traditional Welsh folksongs, with Annabel Thwaite at the piano and Hannah Stone on the harp.
