Kathryn Rudge mezzo soprano
James Baillieu piano
Singled out by The Times in 2012 as a ‘Rising Star of Classical Music’, mezzo-soprano Kathryn Rudge is quickly becoming one of the most sought-after voices of her generation. A BBC Young Generation Artist and nominee in last year’s RPS Awards, she is joined by pianist James Baillieu for an enchanting programme that traces the Lied from its origins in Schubert’s masterful miniatures, through Tosti’s irresistible Italian expressivity, to the quiet understatement of Britten’s elegant British folksong settings.
Schubert Fruhlingsglaube; Nachtstuck; An die laute; Im Abendrot
Tosti Aprile; L’alba separa dall luce l’ombre
Quilter Seven Elizabethan Lyrics
Britten Folksongs: Salley Gardens; Brisk Young Widow; Last Rose of Summer; Oliver Cormwell
Bridge Coleridge Settings: Thy Hand in Mine; Where She Lies Asleep; Love went a-riding
In a new partnership, Norfolk & Norwich Festival and BBC Radio 3’s New Generation Artists scheme gives you the chance to hear some of the most promising new talent from around the world. These concerts will be recorded for future broadcast on BBC Radio 3.
