Ahead of their Leeds Lieder concert at Opera North’s Howard Assembly Room on Saturday 26 November, leading British mezzo Sarah Connolly and Leeds Lieder Director, pianist Joseph Middleton, will perform live on BBC Radio 3 In Tune tomorrow Friday 26 November from 4.30pm. Tune in to hear some informal chat with Sean Rafferty and a pre-concert taster!

Saturday’s recital will feature a programme of Ivor Gurney, John Ireland and Benjamin Britten’s Charm of Lullabies: repertoire that Sarah Connolly has made very much her own. The recital also includes the wonderful poems of Hans Christian Andersen set by Schumann and Ravel’s song cycle Shéhérazade, based on the heroine of the Arabian Nights.
