The daughter of a Singaporean mother and British father, Fleur Barron grew up in the Far East and also spent considerable time in the U.S. and Great Britain. She has been hailed a ‘charismatic star’ by the Boston Globe, and a ‘knockout performer’ by The Times. In a typically wide-ranging, thought-provoking and thoughtful programme Barron brings, for the first time, Chinese folk and art songs to Leeds Lieder. Woven around songs by Brahms and Ives, these gems illuminate a programme she has called “Dreams, Homeland and Childhood”. The programme facilitates cross-cultural dialogue in the most interesting way. Two different settings of Music When Soft Voice Die bookend this special recital.
