Fiona Campbell at Huntington Estate Music Festival

Before the Thursday, Friday and Saturday night concerts there are chats with musicians.  They provide great insights into their views and lives; and allow the audience to get to know them outside of the stage, which is a great addition to seeing their performance.

Emma Ayres, from ABC Classic FM, interviewed composer and festival artistic director Carl Vine and mezzo soprano, Fiona Campbell.

In this video Fiona Campbell talks about the range of music she sang at the Festival and her career.

During the festival Fiona performed:

  • Robert Schumann | Frauenliebe und-leben
  • Johannes Brahms | Gestillte Sehnsucht and Geistliches Wiegenlied
  • A range of American cabaret which were a delightful and humorous mid-point to the festival, and showcased the variety in which Fiona can perform.
  • George Frideric Handel | As with Rosy Steps and Angels, Ever Bright and Fair from Theodora; Sorge nell’alma mia from Imeneo
  • Henry Purcell | Frost music and What Power Art Thou from King Arthur; Dido’s Lament from Dido and Aeneas
  • John Dowland | Now, o now, I needs must part
  • Samuel Barber | Dover Beach
