Ashley Riches bass-baritone
Joseph Middleton piano
Programme to include Schubert Schwanengesang Beethoven An die ferne Geliebte and songs by Haydn.
A BBC New Generation Artist, bass-baritone Ashley Riches read English at Cambridge University, before studying at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and as a Jette Parker Young Artist at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. Recent appearances have included with the Berlin Philharmonic/Sir John Eliot Gardiner, the Philharmonia Orchestra/Esa-Pekka Salonen, the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and at Wigmore Hall. Increasingly recognised as a superb song singer, he appears on Graham Johnson’s complete Poulenc Songs for Hyperion. To draw our Schubert series to a close he performs the great non-cycle, Schubert’s Schwanengesang alongside what many label the genre’s first song-cycle, Beethoven’s hymn to a distant beloved.
This concert will be preceded by a pre-concert talk at 6.30pm.
Presented in partnership with University of Sheffield Concerts: Song Makers
