Event Details

Three great artists join forces for what promises to be a memorable evening of song.

Kate Royal is one of the world’s best-known sopranos, who last appeared for Leeds Lieder in our sell-out Wigmore Hall showcase in 2019.

We are thrilled to welcome the equally celebrated mezzo-soprano Christine Rice, recently made an MBE in the New Year’s Honours list, who appears at the Festival for the first time.

Joined by one of the world’s finest pianists, Julius Drake, they perform songs and duets by Robert Schumann and Johannes Brahms; two composers whose friendship and mutual admiration was immensely important in the history of song. Their programme concludes with a group of songs by Kurt Weill, including settings of his close friend Bertolt Brecht.
