Catriona Morison & Simon Lepper

Catriona Morison & Simon Lepper

15/08/2018 11:00 am - 15/08/2018 The Queen's Hall, 85-89 Clerk St

Mezzo-soprano Catriona Morison graduated from RCS in 2013 and went on to win BBC Cardiff Singer of the Year in 2017.Experience Morison’s hugely characterful singing in her International Festival debut recital, for which she’s joined by the fine British pianist Simon Lepper.

After a rich collection of songs by Brahms – including the intense An die Nachtigall and poignant charm Meine Liebe ist grün – Morison and Lepper perform the heartrending settings of poems by Mary, Queen of Scots, in Schumann’s Gedichte der Königin Maria Stuart. They close their recital with Mahler’s powerfully evocative Rückert Lieder and the lavish opulence of Korngold’s Fünf Lieder Op 38.
