Benjamin Appl baritone – Gary Matthewman piano


L'invitation au voyage Henri Duparc
Sérénade Henri Duparc
9 Lieder Franz Schubert
Dichterliebe, op. 48 Robert Schumann

Warning Concert at 7pm

The young German baritone presents a magnificent Romantic programme. No 19th-century genre is more intimate or more melancholy than the lied – or than its French counterpart, the mélodie. Duparc, in particular, is identified with the latter. He destroyed most of his work; less than 40 compositions survived, all of great beauty. His seventeen songs are particularly outstanding. Schubert and Schumann are, of course, giants of the lieder repertoire. This should be an evening of pure delight.
