Anyone who attended the Leeds Lieder Fundraising Gala at Wigmore Hall a few years ago will have had their socks knocked off by the young Macedonian mezzo Ema Nikolovska. Now a BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist, Kathleen Ferrier Award Winner, and member of the Berlin Staatsopera International Studio, Ema makes her hotly anticipated Leeds Lieder début in a typically wide-ranging recital: a cornucopia of sounds that the audience is less likely to have been exposed to. Creating dialogues between living composers and Lieder, creating a space for poetry which is surrealistic or aleatoric (as in the songs of Cage and León), the recital is an adventure across Ema’s contact with the British, Canadian, American and Germanic music communities. The audience is invited to see what happens when these different eras and styles have a chance to speak to one another in the space of an hour.

*all ticket prices are inclusive of a Box Office booking fee.
