Tonight’s singer, young Austrian mezzo-soprano Sophie Rennert, appears at Leeds Lieder by invitation of our Patron, Graham Johnson. She has already thrilled song audiences at the Schubertiade Hohenems, the Vienna Konzerthaus and Vienna Musikverein and it is our great honour to present what will be her UK recital début. A regular at the Salzburg Festival, Festival d’Aix-en-Provence and a guest artist with the Vienna Philharmonic, Mozarteum Orchestra and Bruckner Orchestra Linz she looks forward to her début at the Bayreuth Festival this season. Graham Johnson needs no introduction to Leeds Lieder audiences. A worldwide authority on song, his formidable intellect, encyclopedic knowledge of the repertoire and deep emotional responses to the poetry he is performing make him a remarkable performer. We are thrilled to welcome them to Leeds Lieder.

Supported by the Friends of Leeds Lieder
