Robert Schumann 1810-56
Dichterliebe
Im wunderschönen Monat Mai
Aus meine Tränen spriessen
Die Rose, die Lilie, die Taube, die Sonne
Wenn ich in deine Augen seh
Ich will meine Seele tauchen
Im Rhein, im heiligen Strome
Ich grolle nicht
Und wüssten’s die Blume, die kleinen
Das ist ein Flöten und Geigen
Hör ich das Liedchen klingen
Ein Jüngling liebt ein Mädcehn
Am leuchtenden Sommermorgen
Ich hab’ im Traum geweinet
Allnächtlich im Traume
Aus alten Märchen winkt es
Die alten bösen Lieder

Ludwig van Beethoven 1770-1827
An die ferne Geliebte
Auf dem Hügel sitz ich spähend
Wo die Berge so blau
Leichte Segler in den Höhen
Diese Wolken in den Höhen
Es kehret der Maien, es blühet die Au
Nimm sie hin den, diese Lieder

Settings of Yeats by Ivor Gurney and Marian Ingoldsby

Described as ‘the current front-runner in the new generation of Lieder singers’ (Gramophone Magazine), Benjamin Appl is already celebrated by audiences and critics the world over. The last private student of Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, Appl was a BBC New Generation Artist, ECHO Rising Star, is an exclusive SONY Classical recording artist and winner of the 2016 Gramophone Young Artist of the Year. In a characteristically thoughtful programme, Appl juxtaposes two of the greatest cycles in the repertoire with little-known settings of Yeats.

“Appl is not only a singer of boundless promise, he is already a great artist… and since he has an extraordinarily beautiful voice, there should be decades of happiness as he continues to expand his repertoire.” BBC Music Magazine

Presented by the Howard Assembly Room in association with Leeds Lieder
