Ian Bostridge leads on song and dance

The tenor has been invited to give the 2016 Lincoln Kirstein lecture at NYU.

Bostridge’s lecture will discuss the relationship between song and dance, the role of song in Schubert’s music, and Benjamin Britten’s complex work with dance and stylization from The Prince of the Pagodas to Death in Venice. Opening remarks on the life of Lincoln Kirstein will be delivered by Leon Wieseltier.

  • I have always said it, as a tenor, an EMI creation. Mediocre voice but very intelligent singer and even more musicologist….
