2019 Leeds Lieder Young Artists
Applications now open
Following the success of last year’s inaugural scheme, we are inviting 10 duos, aged 30 years or under, to become 2019 Leeds Lieder Young Artists and immerse themselves in the Festival, with more opportunities to perform and a prize available for most promising duo.
There will be opportunities to work in masterclass with either Angelika Kirchschlager, Malcolm Martineau, Ann Murray or Amanda Roocroft, each sharing their experience of working on the international stage and exploring the special ensemble relationship of voice and piano.
Leeds Lieder Young Artists will also perform in a live-streamed concert, late-night Lieder Lounge and Schumann/Brahms study event, with additional coachings available with Richard Stokes. They will also receive free tickets to all Festival events featuring artists including; Benjamin Appl, Julius Drake, Graham Johnson, Miah Persson, Fatma Said, Nicky Spence and William Thomas.
New for 2019, a £1,000 prize will be awarded by the Schubert Institute (UK) to the duo with most potential at the conclusion of the final masterclass. The duo will also be given a lunchtime concert as part of the 2019/20 University of Leeds International Concert Series.
