WONDERFUL to have Simon Keenlyside, one of our greatest storytellers in song, back where he belongs: at @wigmore_hall

Replying to @skbaritoneinfo @pianomalk @wigmore_hall – Listening right now to the recording on BBC Radio 3 and WOW! It sounds wonderful, astounding! Bravo to these wonderful performers

Pure (classy) filth at @wigmore_hall tonight: thanks to Simon Keenlyside & @pianomalk for the Chansons gaillardes

concur 100% fabulous evening courtesy of Simon Keenlyside, @pianomalk and @wigmore_hall Thank you so much for the wonderful program

Some very expressive & intelligent song interpretation from Simon Keenlyside & @pianomalk @wigmore_hall Particularly liked the Finzi

Lovely evening @wigmore_hall listening to the rich chocolatey tones of my favorite baritone Simon Keenlyside @skbaritoneinfo

Wonderful Wigmore concert by Simon Keenlyside – voice + personality + EQ

Simon Keenlyside @wigmore_hall tonight was simply breathtaking – clear, rich, and characterful!

Absolute brilliance and class from Simon Keenlyside & Malcolm Martineau tonight @wigmore_hall A truly fulfilling experience from the best!

Listening to this while doing my spreadsheets. George Herbert/RVW – simply wonderful. “The cross taught all wood to resound His Name”

Replying to @skbaritoneinfo @pianomalk @wigmore_hall -Listened to the broadcast, such a wonderful recital, varied and interesting programme.

Replying to @skbaritoneinfo and 3 others – Ahh-hh. So late that there was only time for RVW and the lovely Finzi song before bed–but the Finzi is, in a sense, a lullaby..

Simon #Keenlyside once made my heart stop with Ravel’s Kaddish. Did it again tonight with Sibelius @wigmore_hall @BBCRadio3 @skbaritoneinfo

Simon Keenlyside + @pianomalk + @wigmore_hall = complete happiness. RVW, Finzi, Sibelius, Poulenc, Mahler (& Schubert). On iPlayer ICYMI.
