Themed Programme - The Spirit's Song

The Sir John Soane Museum in Lincoln's Inn Fields has a veritable cornucopia of treasures and artefacts. The architect Sir John was a close friend of Mozart's original "Susanna" – Nancy Storace - and these two recitals, given in the Museum and in various Soane properties reflect his love of antiquities and of the music of his time.
