The winner of last year’s John Christie Award at Glyndebourne, Louise Alder is forging an impressive international career, performing major roles as a member of Opera Frankfurt. She joins James Baillieu for a recital of Romantic songs. From the arresting simplicity of Schumann’s ‘little songs’ composed for children to the burnished eloquence of Szymanowski’s setting of various German poems, this is a melodic journey through some of the gems of the Lieder repertory.
