Tonight he is joined by Joseph Middleton, recently described in Opera Now as ‘the perfect accompanist.’

“This was certainly a concert of rare intensity...Spence was in strong and confident voice...He was absolute master of the texts, and at every point feeling and meaning carried the songs forward.” The Telegraph on Toby Spence at Wigmore Hal
