Rosenblatt Recitals 2016/2017 season has its familiar tempting mix of established names and rising stars (mainly at the Wigmore Hall). The season is opened by tenor Alek Shrader and pianist Roger Vignoles in a programme which mixes new music, Iain Bell's song cycle The Undying Splendour, with American greats including Samuel Barber and Virgil Thomson, plus arias by Mozart, Handel and Rossini.

Other highlights include a recital from American soprano Sondra Radvanovsky (who recently performed Donizetti's Roberto Devereux at the Met) accompanied by Anthony Manoli in arias by Vivaldi, Dvorak, Giordano and songs by Bellini, Liszt and Barber (at Cadogan Hall). And Irish mezzo-soprano Tara Erraught, accompanied by James Baillieu, will be giving her first Rosenblatt Recital with lieder by Spohr, Lachner, Schubert and arias by Mozart and Rossini.

There are two UK debuts in the recitals, Italian tenor Ivan Magri (a pupil of Luciano Pavarotti) accompanied by Iain Burnside will perform arias by Verdi, Donizetti and songs by Bellini, Tosti, De Curtis and Gastaldon, whilst Italian baritone Simone Piazzolla (who won 2nd price in the 2013 Operalia competition), accompanied by Giuseppe Vaccaro, will perform music by Tosti, Donizetti, Gounod and Verdi.

Other recitals include Italian soprano Eleanor Buratto (the other Luciano Pavarotti pupil of the season), Mexican soprano Maria Katzarava and Italian tenor Stefano La Colla in a duo recital, soprano Lise Davidsen (who makes her Glyndebourne debut next year), and Argentine bass Nauel di Pierro.
