'Heimat' means home; a sense of belonging; emotional ties to a certain place. Conjuring notions of nostalgia, comfort and security, it provides the theme for a varied programme of songs and Lieder, that charts the emotions of two artists born in foreign lands (Appl in Germany, Baillieu in South Africa) who have made England their home.
Benjamin Appl, Baritone
James Baillieu, Piano
