Fresh from tours to the USA, Japan and across Europe, and with a fast-growing and award-winning discography, we are thrilled to welcome back Carolyn Sampson. Recently described by MusicWeb International as "one of the great singers of our time" she is joined by Leeds Lieder Director Joseph Middleton. "Her partnership with Middleton is inspired" (The Observer). Their programme including Haydn’s dramatic cantata, sensual Romanticism from the young Schoenberg and Gustav Mahler, and Debussy and Koechlin's highly charged settings of Bilitis ends with one of the greatest works in the song repertoire: Strauss's Four Last Songs.
