Bryn Terfel

Bryn Terfel

For no gallant son of Freedom
To a tyrant’s yoke should bend,
And a noble heart must answer
To the sacred call of “Friend”.

“Keep The Home Fires Burning” Musique d’Ivor Novello (1914) Paroles de Lena Guilbert Ford

A voice with the strength of a prop-forward, a worthy descendant of the Celtic bards with his intelligent and thoughtful recitation, an opera leading man who loves musicals, pop and folk and, every time his programme allows him, a defender and teacher of the Welsh language to bemused audiences… You guessed it, it can only be Bryn Terfel. He comes back to Geneva in recital, accompanied by his wife Hannah Stone (former official harpist to the Prince of Wales) and pianist Annabel Thwaite, for a programme as wide as a starry sky and worthy of a long hike through the peaks and valleys of his beautiful native land of Wales.
