The Tenth Leeds Lieder Festival opens with a gala recital given by one of the great artists of our day. Equally famed on the great operatic stages as in concert and recital she has been named ‘the superlative British Mezzo’ by the San Francisco Chronicle. Joining Coote is star pianist Christian Blackshaw, her regular duo-partner at Wigmore Hall, whose deeply expressive artistry is well matched with her own. Heady Romanticism sits at the heart of this recital.
