Evening Recital with Angelika Kirchschlager and Ju


Liebeslied – Lieder’s Love Songs

Angelika Kirchschlager _mezzo-soprano_
Julius Drake _piano_

We are thrilled to welcome as our Guest of Honour one of the most important artists currently appearing before the public. Acclaimed as one of the foremost interpreters of Richard Strauss and Mozart, Austrian mezzo-soprano Angelika Kirchschlager is heard on the world’s great stages and has the rare distinction of having given recitals on the main stages of La Scala Milan and the Vienna Staatsoper. Her recordings have won many awards, including a Grammy. Much loved accompanist Julius Drake returns to Leeds Lieder.

Programme to include:

Schumann _Liebeslied, Er ist’s, Die Soldatenbraut, Die Löwenbraut_

Brahms _Meine Liebe ist grün, Therese, Über die Heide, Unbewegte laue Luft _

Schubert  _Gesang der Norna, Am Bach im Frühling, Geheimes, Florio, Erlkönig, An Silvia, Der liebliche Stern, Bei dir allein!_

Brahms  _Der Gang zum Liebchen, Dein blaues Auge, Von ewiger Liebe_

Schumann _Frühlingsnacht, Die Lotosblume, Der Einsiedler, Requiem_

“the grainy and distinctive timbre of Kirchschlager’s vivid mezzo-soprano is well suited to this highly charged emotional world, and Drake’s playing is eloquently impassioned” _The Daily Telegraph_

“Kirchschlager is exquisite and intensely dramatic by turns … Drake is outstanding” _The Guardian_
