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. We are delighted to welcome her back with Julius Drake, the ‘collaborative pianist nonpareil’ (The New Yorker). Their programme includes Dvorak’s fiery Gypsy Songs, Schumann’s Mignon and songs by Fauré, Wolf and Léhar.
