Soprano Louise Alder and pianist Gary Matthewman are giving a recital at the Wigmore Hall on Sunday 19 February 2017, at 3pm. They will be performing Huw Watkins' Five Larkin Songs (which were premiered by Carolyn Sampson in 2010 and won the vocal category of the 2011 British Composer Awards), plus a group of songs by Sibelius (Kyssens hopp Op. 13 No. 2, Vilse Op. 17 No. 4, Säv, säv, susa Op. 36 No. 4, Flickan kom ifrån sin älsklings möte Op. 37 No. 5) and songs by Puccini and Verdi.

Louise Alder's recent roles have included Ilia in Mozart's Idomeneo at Garsington (see my review), and Zerlina in Mozart's Don Giovanni with Glyndebourne on Tour (see my review) and she will be making her Welsh National Opera debut as Sophie in Der Rosenkavalier later this year.


The concert is part of the Wigmore Hall's Chamber Zone, the free ticket scheme for 8-25 year olds, and tickets for those under 35 are £5. Full details from the Wigmore Hall website.
