Leeds Lieder Director Joseph Middleton said:
“The past six months have seen enormous change at Leeds Lieder as we adapt to working in a new paradigm. Our Autumn events saw record-breaking socially distanced audience numbers enjoy Lieder in Leeds Town Hall, and our new foray in broadcasting our recitals as live-streams have seen audiences join us from all over the world.
A series of our Mahler recitals were heard as a week of BBC Radio 3 lunchtime concerts in early 2021; we have filmed all our education work so that we can engage with 1000s of school children in Yorkshire during the pandemic, and we have set up mentoring schemes for our Young Artists, pairing them with illustrious singers and pianists for remote training sessions.
It now gives me enormous joy to present 8 recitals in March and April.
Stars of the Lieder world rub shoulders with young artists, all of whom have been particularly impacted this year. The programming mixes familiar masterpieces with recitals that seek to open cultural debate and celebrate diversity. I do hope you will join us.
I look forward to hearing the majestic Leeds Town Hall reverberate with song and we look forward to welcoming you, either from your home via our livestreams, or in person as and when this is allowed”.
