Description

Introduction

“The whole story takes place in the Miller’s imagination, cut off from the thoughts and actions of those around him, with the singer becoming the protagonist of a quasi-operatic monodrama. Jamie W. Hall and Paul Plummer give us a deeply understanding account of this earliest and most influential of Romantic song cycles.” Dr. John Bentley, Trinity College London

About the artists

Paul Plummer

Formerly organ scholar of New College, Oxford, Paul Plummer trained as a piano accompanist at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. He attended courses at the Tanglewood Music Center and Britten-Pears School, and studied with Malcolm Martineau, Roger Vignoles, Margo Garrett and many others. He has accompanied singers at London’s Purcell Room and Wigmore Hall, the Tonhalle in Zürich and on BBC Radio 3, as well as in recital at The Three Choirs, Presteigne and Canterbury “Sounds New” festivals, among others. He has also worked as music staff for several UK opera companies plus those of Kiel, Innsbruck and Köln, advises and accompanies for the international opera scouting company www.nyiop.com, and is highly in demand as a freelance repetiteur and vocal coach.

Jamie W. Hall

Jamie W. Hall is a performer who has built up an exciting and varied career in music, from concert soloist and recitalist; to skilled ensemble singer, conductor and even composer with a number of published works to his name. In recent years however, Jamie’s focus has been on singing, continuing to perform online to a growing audience during the COVID crisis – a move commended by the RPS in 2020.

Whilst he continues to feed his passion for choral music as a full-time member of the BBC Singers, Jamie is fast gaining recognition as a versatile and engaging performer of Art Song, and his performances, both live and recorded, have been enjoyed across the world.

Growing up in a Yorkshire mining village in the 1980s, Jamie’s route into classical music was somewhat unconventional. With only a few piano lessons and an adolescence spent busking show tunes behind him, he nevertheless followed his heart and found himself studying music at university where he discovered both his voice and a love of classical music.

Jamie has a great fondness for the songs of Franz Schubert, so it is with particular joy that he is able to bring that wonderful music to this, his first CD.
