Notes and Editorial Reviews

Two of opera’s greatest British stars, Dame Felicity Lott and Sir Thomas Allen, sing songs and duets by Schumann, Brahms, Mendelssohn, Bizet, Duparc, Saint-Saens and Faure from the Wigmore Hall, London.

Dame Felicity Lott has always had a special love for the song repertoire. As well as expertise in the songs of Strauss, Schubert, Schumann and Brahms she is also a master of French Melodies.

This concert, therefore, is especially suited to her talents. Sir Thomas Allen is, perhaps, best known as a singer of great Mozart roles. He is a star of all the great Opera houses: La Scala, Vienna and the Metropolitan to name but a few. He brings his unique dramatic talent and flair to these songs.

Sir
Read more Thomas is a much-acclaimed recitalist worldwide and his warm voice, capable of immense tenderness, is shown to its full advantage in this recital.
