Sarah Connolly mezzo-soprano
Joseph Middleton piano

The unrivalled Sarah Connolly receives the highest plaudits wherever she sings. A prolific recording artist, she has a matchless international reputation as an interpreter of the iconic mezzo roles of Handel, Strauss and Wagner. Her fierce intellect and thrilling theatrical intensity feed into her work as a recitalist and for Leeds audiences she performs Ravel’s Shéhérazade, the work that first made her want to become a singer, as well as presenting a group of English songs that she has very much made her own.

Vier Lieder Op.40:
Der Soldat
Der Spielmann

Maurice Ravel
La flûte enchantée

Benjamin Britten
