Bliss International Song Series

Dame Sarah Connolly and Joseph Middleton

Wednesday 3rd November

7:30 pm

Dame Sarah Connolly, recital and operatic superstar needs no introduction. Firmly established as one of the most important musicians of our time she has made the repertoire of Handel, Mahler and Britten very much her own. A dramatic intensity, probing intellect and one of the most beautiful instruments currently before the public makes her recital appearances red letter days. Finest English song forms the bulk of their recital. Connolly and her regular duo partner Joseph Middleton also perform Schumann songs to Hans Christian Andersen poetry and Wolf songs that span the full gamut of his writing style from the miniature Auch kleine Dinge to the towering Wagnerism of Kennst du das Land?
