Programme Note

“Winterreise is to me the ultimate work that I perform. It’s a work that ranks with the greatest in the operatic and symphonic repertoire.” So writes Ian Bostridge, who stands as one of the foremost Schubertians of our time. A recent performance by Bostridge and Middleton drew particularly enthusiastic reviews: ‘… with an impressive range of dynamics and colour [it] was both exceedingly intense and sincere – a great interpretation.’Their recital is preceded by a recital by Harriet Burns, last heard by Yorkshire audiences at the Leeds Lieder Wigmore Hall masterclass given by our President, the great Dutch soprano Elly Ameling. She will perform Schubert’s Ellens Gesang I, II & III. Her recital for Leeds Lieder takes place under the auspices of Barbara Hannigan’s Momentum Equilibrium initiative.
