Leeds Lieder's Spring recital series

Leeds Lieder, artistic director Joseph Middleton, has announced a Spring recital series to be performed at Leeds Town Hall and streamed live, with an audience when allowed. Leeds Lieder is collaborating with the Kathleen Ferrier Awards and Momentum so that the line-up is a mixture of experienced artists alongside young artists.

The series opens on 26 March 2021 with soprano Fatma Said and pianist Joseph Middleton, alongside Momentum artists Bernadette Johns (soprano) and Alexandra Standing (piano) in Ravel, Schumann and Brahms, and the series concludes on 25 April 2021 with a mezzo-soprano Dame Sarah Connolly and Joseph Middleton in Chausson’s Poème de l’amour et de la mer, songs by Debussy and Mahler, plus English song.

In between there are recitals from Kitty Whately (mezzo-soprano), Madelaine Newton and Kevin Whately (actors) and Joseph Middleton with Momentum Artists Laurence Kilsby (tenor) and Ian Tindale (piano); Fleur Barron (mezzo soprano), Ashok Klouda (cello) and Joseph Middleton; Gerald Finley (bass-baritone) and Julius Drake (piano); Kathleen Ferrier Award winners Benson Wilson (baritone) and Ella O’Neill (piano).
