For the first time since her prestigious Rosenblatt recital in 2011, Elizabeth will be giving a recital showcasing the songs of the British composer, Samuel Coleridge-Taylor. The programme will also include songs written by his peers, Elgar and Vaughan-Williams, and his composition teacher, Charles Villiers Stanford.

Coleridge-Taylor was once hailed by a New York critic in 1901 as the "Black Mahler", so the recital ends with a performance of Elizabeth's favourite collection of songs, Mahler's Rückert Lieder.
