One of the most beloved recitalists currently performing before the public, star Irish soprano Ailish Tynan makes a welcome return to Leeds Lieder. A regular at Wigmore Hall and the Royal Opera House, she won the Song Prize at Cardiff Singer of the World and was a BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist early in her career. She is known for her engaging stage manner, wit, and the breathtaking beauty of her voice. English song begins the programme, including rarely- performed gems by Rebecca Clarke, before she presents high octane Romanticism courtesy of Goethe and Hugo Wolf. A potpourri of Irish song finish the recital.

Tynan is joined by Leeds Lieder Director Joseph Middleton ‘who now counts, alongside his predecessors Gerald Moore, Geoffrey Parsons, Dalton Baldwin, Graham Johnson and others, among the great accompanists of the English language. His flexible and intense playing, attentive and imaginative.’ (Resmusica)
