Themed Programme - Flower Songs

This programme (sometimes called "A Seasonal Bouquet") evolved because of Charlotte's background as the grand-daughter of Lionel de Rothschild, the creator of the famous rhododendron and azalea garden of Exbury, in Hampshire. She is a Director and actively involved in the day-to-day running whenever not on tour!

Flower Songs

"Flower Songs at Kew Gardens, a recital given by the soprano Charlotte de Rothschild, was an adept piece of programming. Miss de Rothschild possesses a beautifully refined tone and the gift of graceful characterisation. The programme featured an imaginative selection of songs for the seasons representing many different styles and eras."
