Austrian baritone Florian Boesch, one of today’s foremost Lieder interpreters, makes a welcome return to the VRS stage — this time with Swedish soprano Miah Persson. This is the first duo vocal recital in the history of the VRS with the added benefit of the wonderful Malcolm Martineau at the keyboard. Not to be missed!
“Boesch doesn’t just sing this music, he inhabits it to the hilt. His voice has a thrilling edge, and he colours his lines with delicate artistry, yet his approach is as natural as conversation, never going for effects for their own sake, or inflating the importance of trifles which some of these songs indubitably are” – The Independent
The program takes us through Schumann’s life in song, starting with the first song he wrote for his first girlfriend, to his last two, written for Queen Mary Stuart, written in the depths of madness.
