Miah Persson, soprano
Florian Boesch, baritone
Malcolm Martineau, piano

Pre-concert talk – 6:30 PM

With a voice “clear and lithe” and “a great sensitivity to the text” (The New York Times), acclaimed Swedish soprano Miah Persson creates “spine-tingling moments of vocal splendour” (Edinburgh Spotlight). Renowned Austrian baritone Florian Boesch is a compelling interpreter, “a performer constantly striving for new subtleties of meaning and expression” (The Guardian). The wind beneath their wings is the “exquisitely sensitive pianism of Malcolm Martineau, whose dynamic shading and heart-stopping timing… redefine the words ‘accompaniment’ and ‘collaboration’” (The Herald).

Program

Lyrical songs and duets spanning the creative life of composer Robert SCHUMANN, inspired by German poets and the love of his wife, Clara, with selections from Liederkreis, Frauenliebe und -leben, Liederalbum für die Jugend, and more.
