LLF24 – Evening Recital: Ema Nikolovska and Joseph Middleton
Ema Nikolovska mezzo-soprano
Joseph Middleton piano
Macedonian-Canadian mezzo-soprano Ema Nikolovska delighted Leeds Lieder audiences in 2021, and we are thrilled to welcome her back to perform – with Joseph Middleton – the newly-commissioned song cycle by Tansy Davies. The rest of their programme centres around the songs of Schubert, Debussy and the remarkable Margaret Bonds, a composer enjoying a well-deserved renaissance.
Since being at Leeds Lieder in 2021, Ema has given her Carnegie Hall and Deutsche Staatsoper Berlin debuts as well as creating the main role in George Benjamin’s Picture a day like this at Covent Garden’s Linbury Theatre. In 2022 she became a recipient of the prestigious Borletti-Buitoni Trust Award. It’s a thrill to witness the stratospheric rise of this outstanding artist and we’re so pleased to welcome her back to Yorkshire!
“The future of this privileged voice seems to have no limits.” ÓPERA ACTUAL
