Heine, folksongs and Kerner Lieder

Hasselhorn and Middleton juxtapose two of our featured composers in this recital. Schumann’s great settings of dramatic Heine and heartbreaking Kerner poems bookend four folksongs by Brahms. German-born Hasselhorn stands at the forefront of today’s young Lieder singers. A prize-winner at the Queen Elisabeth Competition, Das Lied and Wigmore International Song Competitions, he has recently joined the Vienna Staatsoper where he will perform major roles and is in demand with the greatest orchestras and conductors.

Programme to include:

Schumann Tragödie I and II, Mein Wagen rollet langsam, Belzatzar
Brahms Schwesterlein, In stiller Nacht, Wach auf mein Herzensschöne, Mein Mädel hat einen Rosenmund
Schumann Zwölf Gedichte von Justinus Kerner

‘… supple, virile baritone… perfect articulation and dynamic subtleties lent every phrase absolute authority and nobility.’ Kieler News (Germany) on Samuel Hasselhorn
“Middleton is outstanding, his reputation as a rising star among accompanists richly deserved” Gramophone Magazine
