After 17 years of bringing known and unknown singers to our attention in his remarkable recital series, Ian Rosenblatt has announced that the forthcoming Rosenblatt Recital on 5 June 2017 will be the final recital. This last recital will be given by the Argentinian bass, Nahuel di Pierro accompanied by Alphonse Cemin in Monteverdi, Vivaldi, Handel, Rameau, Mozart, Donizetti, Rossini, Debussy, and Berlioz.

The series has given us the opportunity to get to know a remarkable variety of singers, many hitherto unknown in the UK, and some making their recital debut. Not every performance was a classic, but the chance to hear voices from the opera house in close proximity in  recital was a great luxury. You can read more about the recital series in my interview with Ian Rosenblatt. The series will, however, remain in electronic format as there are plans to make the extensive archive of recordings available.

The full press release is available from the Rosenblatt Recitals website.
