"Katherine Broderick — still only in her twenties — now confirms and expands her thrillingly burgeoning vocal skills in her formidable stage presence as a Tatyana of outstanding character and power."
The Times, reviewing British Youth Opera’s Eugene Onegin

Having this year won both the Kathleen Ferrier Award and the prestigious GSMD Gold medal within the space of a week, Katherine Broderick is indisputably one of the country’s most exciting emerging young talents; it is a privilege to add her name to the host of former Ferrier Award winners who have performed at the Festival, and she is warmly welcomed back to Oxford Lieder following her performance in the 2006 Song Evening series.

She and pianist Jonathan Beatty (himself a previous Kathleen Ferrier Accompanists’ Award winner, and a familiar face to Oxford Lieder audiences) made their Wigmore Hall debut together last year. Tonight they present a colourful programme, beginning with some of Brahms’ rousing Zigeunerlieder (“Gypsy Songs”, growing out of the world of the Hungarian folksong) and also including several songs by Clara Schumann, to whom Brahms was deeply devoted. Schubert’s first published masterpiece, Gretchen am Spinnrade, sits alongside some lesser-known gems, and this group is followed by a charming selection of songs about flowers (and the mischief that can go with them…) by Quilter, Fauré and Bizet.
