Strauss "Enoch Arden"

Melodrama for narrator and piano
Poem by Alfred Lord Tennyson (1809 - 1892)

Linda Hirst & Helen Yorke

Linda Hirst, head of Trinity College Vocal Studies, gave an enterprising and engrossing performance of this melodrama - well known about, but rarely performed - at St Alfege's Church, Greenwich, which has a close association with the neighbouring Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music & Dance where Helen Yorke also teaches.

Everyone was gripped by the tale as Linda threw herself into its drama. Far better than a German version on YouTube !
