Welsh soprano Natalya Romaniw is one of Europe’s most promising young stars. Recent winner of the 2016 Critic’s Choice Award for Music, for her “big toned, generous, gut-wrenching performances” (The Sunday Times), and her “glowing voice capable of astonishing power” (FT), she is often hailed by the British press as “the outstanding soprano of her generation” (Telegraph). Success of the 2020/21 season includes being awarded Young Artist of the Year at the Gramophone Awards and Singer of the Year at the Royal Philharmonic Society Awards. In her Leeds Lieder début she performs repertoire from her award-winning CD, alongside regular collaborator Iain Burnside.
