Dame Sarah Connolly, Leeds Lieder Patron and operatic superstar needs no introduction. In the line of great British mezzo sopranos interpreting Elgar’s Sea Pictures, Sarah Connolly has made the work very much her own. A rare performance of Chausson’s Poème de l’amour et de la mer in the piano accompanied version forms the central section of this recital and is paired with folk-inspired songs from Des Knaben Wunderhorn by Mahler. A collection of the finest English song rounds off their programme.
