Listen to 2020/21 Young Artists Jevan McAuley (Baritone) and Maria Tataru (Piano) perform 'Ah! per sempre io ti perdei', from Bellini's I Puritani.

Jevan shares some of the feelings evoked by the aria: 'For me this aria perfectly encapsulates the feeling of the loss of hope and joy even when all around you are jubilant, and that it doesn’t matter how many people you have around you if the one you want is no longer there. It’s a challenging aria, but so rewarding.'
