Song at Wolfson: Martin Hässler sings Die schöne Müllerin

17 May 2018, 18:00 - 19:00



This is the second song recital in our new series presented in collaboration with Wolfson College. The auditorium at Wolfson is an ideal space for song performance: intimate, with excellent acoustics and a fine Steinway piano. The series will showcase outstanding singers who are in the early stages of highly successful careers: not yet household names perhaps, but international stars in the making.

Tonight's concert will be given by the young German baritone Martin Hässler, who will perform Franz Schubert's Die schöne Müllerin, a seminal work of the song repertoire. Martin was a prize winner at the prestigious 'Das Lied' competition, and is a committed recitalist alongside his burgeoning operatic career. He gave his debut at Garsington Opera in 2016 as Captain Eugene Onegin, and has worked extensively for Scottish Opera. He and Sholto Kynoch have recently performed Die schöne Müllerin in Heidelberg and Berlin.

Concerts begin at 6pm and last no more than one hour. Tickets cost £10. There is ample parking on site and in the streets nearby.
