Christopher Maltman is one of the leading baritones of his generation. His career highlights include singing the title role in Claus Guth’s iconic production of Mozart´s Don Giovanni, and more recently productions of Verdi´s Rigoletto in Frankfurt, Berlin and Vienna. He is accompanied by the outstanding pianist, vocal coach and conductor Audrey Saint-Gil.

This programme was born whilst Christopher Maltman was studying at the Royal Academy of Music. The compositions have been selected to form a coherent but flexible narrative that produces a touching memoire to all those affected by war.
