Dorottya Láng last appeared alongside Toby Spence in Janacek’s The Diary of One who Disappeared at the 2018 Lieder Festival, where she also gave a sensational recital of Hungarian songs.

Their programme includes Dvorak’s fiery Gypsy Songs, Ravel’s astonishing and exotic Shéhérazade and songs by Korngold and Léhar.
