Classical Song

17 – 24 June 2018

Grammy-award winning mezzo soprano Anne Sofie von Otter and Kristian Bezuidenhout join forces with the leaders of 'The 21st Century Singer'.

John Fisher piano
Julia Faulkner soprano
Matthew Rose bass
Anne Sofie von Otter mezzo soprano
Kristian Bezuidenhout fortepiano

In their second course of the Aldeburgh Festival, John Fisher, Julia Faulkner and Matthew Rose are joined by two more outstanding artists; Grammy award-winning mezzo soprano Anne Sofie von Otter, whose unrivalled discography spans three decades, and Kristian Bezuidenhout, one of today’s most exciting and versatile keyboard artists (who will give their own recital during the Aldeburgh Festival). Prior to a one-day intensive course on fortepiano with Kristian, Anne Sofie, Julia and John will lead participants through the poise and charm of classical song in private sessions and public masterclasses.

Participants’ repertoire choices should be confined to the classical era (e.g. Beethoven, Haydn, Mozart) but must include voice and piano songs (i.e. not only arias).

Final Recital: Saturday 23 June
