32. Catriona Morison & Malcolm Martineau: Brahms, Grieg, Schumann & Lang

13 October 2021, 13:00 - 14:00

Catriona Morison shot to fame as winner of the BBC Cardiff Singer of the World Competition in 2017. We welcome her to the Festival with internationally-renowned pianist Malcolm Martineau. They include Grieg’s wonderful six setting of German texts, Op.48, which retain a strong Nordic influence and conclude with the ecstatic ‘Ein Traum’ (‘A Dream’). Alongside this are works by Schumann and Brahms, and a group of songs by Josephine Lang, who was recognised and supported by the Schumanns and Mendelssohn as an important song writer and whose works are once again gaining recognition today.
