Concert version

In 2018, British baritone Christopher Maltman will inaugurate the series of recitals with piano accompaniment He will transfer us to the times of the First World War, telling a tragic story of hundreds thousands soldiers from all over Europe, who left their homes full of hope to enlist to the army. It is a story about the horror of war where most of the soldiers stayed forever. The few who came back home, lost their youth, health, hope and innocence in the battlefields. Joseph Middleton will play the piano.
