Tania Pratt sings Solveig’s songs

We’re delighted to announce that Tania Pratt will join us to sing two of Solveig’s songs from Grieg’s incidental music to Peer Gynt. ‘Solveig’s Song’ is famous from the suites Grieg made of the music, but in that version the vocal line is played by the violins. ‘Solveig’s Cradle Song’, at the very end of the incidental music, is less well-known, but even more hauntingly beautiful.
