About the album

While Jonathan Dove is best known for his 25 operas and his commitment to community and children’s music, including some very large scale statements, his considerable output of songs show a very different side to his musical persona. Most of these songs were written to commemorate events, friends or people, and several had private first performances with the composer at the piano. Dove’s experience as a dramatic composer is shown by his masterful shaping of sequences of poems. Each of the song-cycles recorded here is a well-balanced organism, and there is only one stand-alone song on this CD. It goes without saying that his setting of and response to the poems set is nonpareil.

Kitty Whately trained at Chetham’s School of Music, the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and the Royal College of Music International Opera School. She won both the Kathleen Ferrier Award and the 59th Royal Overseas League Award in 2011, and was part of the prestigious Verbier Festival Academy where she appeared as Cherubino in Le Nozze di Figaro and in Beethoven’s Choral Fantasy. Kitty was a BBC New Generation Artist from 2013-15, during which time she recorded her debut solo album This Other Eden (Champs Hill Records), made recordings with BBC orchestras, commissioned a new song cycle by Jonathan Dove (included on this album) and made several appearances at the BBC Proms.

Opera highlights include the world premiere of Vasco Mendonca’s The House Taken Over directed by Katie Mitchell, with performances in Antwerp, Strasbourg, Luxembourg, Bruges and Lisbon; Rosina in Il barbiere di Siviglia and Stewardess in Jonathan Dove’s Flight (Opera Holland Park); Hermia in A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Bergen National Opera); Kate in Owen Wingrave (Opera National de Lorraine); Dorabella in Così fan tutte (English Touring Opera) and Ippolita / Pallade in Cavalli’s Elena in Montpellier and Versailles for the Aix-en-Provence Festival.

Kitty is in high demand as a concert artist and has given performances with most of the UK’s major orchestras, including Duruflé’s Requiem and Mozart’s Requiem (Royal Philharmonic Orchestra), Bach’s B Minor Mass (Royal Northern Sinfonia and Scottish Chamber Orchestra), Beethoven’s Mass in C Major (Philharmonia Orchestra), Mendelssohn’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Ulster Orchestra), Haydn’s Nelson Mass (Britten Sinfonia on tour in Spain and the Netherlands) and Bach’s Magnificat (Britten Sinfonia and Choir of King’s College Cambridge). Further performances include Elgar’s Dream of Gerontius at St John’s Smith Square and Handel’s Messiah at the Royal Albert Hall. Kitty has given recitals at Wigmore Hall, Leighton House, and the Edinburgh, Oxford Lieder, Leeds Lieder and Buxton festivals, working regularly
