Christiane Karg, soprano Malcolm Martineau, piano

Pre-concert Talk 6:30 pm

Bavarian soprano Christiane Karg “is perfectly at ease in Lieder. Her voice sounds opulent… though a hint of metal in the tone, carefully deployed, permits her infinite dramatic potential. There’s an uninhibited quality to her singing… intimate… provocatively sensual” (The Guardian).

She established such immediate and total rapport with her audience that we were eating out of her hand… Karg is the complete package…She exudes a delightful, unfussy charisma… Lieder recitals should always be like this” (The York Press).
