Britten wrote his Songs and Proverbs of William Blake, Op. 74 for the German
baritone Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau in 1965. The singer admired the ‘concentration
and enigmatic smile’ of the settings, and Britten constructed, through alternation
of proverbs with songs, and an intense contemplation on the human and the
eternal, one of his greatest song cycles. By contrast Tit for Tat sees Britten
revisiting youthful, light-spirited settings of the poet Walter de la Mare. The folksong
arrangements are amongst his most famous, and beloved. The baritone Roderick Williams encompasses a wide
repertoire, from baroque to contemporary music, in the
opera house, on the concert platform and in recital. His
recital appearances have taken him to London’s Wigmore
Hall and many European festivals. He has an extensive
discography and his recordings of English song with Iain
Burnside have received particular acclaim.
