Recognized for her superlative gifts as a performer, the celebrated Dutch soprano Elly Ameling performed for more than forty years in virtually every major cultural centre in the world. Firmly established as one of the greatest singers of our age, it is a great thrill for Leeds Lieder to receive our esteemed President at the 2016 Festival. She will discuss her remarkable contribution to the world of song with Iain Burnside, well-known to Leeds Lieder audiences as pianist, past Festival Artistic Director and interviewer par excellence.
