The dazzling soprano Elizabeth Watts sings a selection of Scarlatti arias with the English Concert.

With a voice described by International Record Review as 'one of the most beautiful Britain has seen in a generation',  Watts has established herself among the brightest talents performing today. Tonight she performs a selection of Baroque arias which borrow from the Iberian folk tradition with the acclaimed period instrument ensemble The English Concert.
