Songs by Schubert, Schumann & Grieg
Thursday 17 August 2017
The Queen's Hall

Benjamin Appl Baritone
Pavel Kolesnikov Piano

Lieder and songs by Schubert, Schumann, Grieg and Matthias Pintscher

Charismatic, perceptive, and performing with a striking identification with his songs, young German baritone Benjamin Appl has been hailed as one of the finest of his generation of Lieder singers – for his seductive expressiveness, his honeyed voice and his astonishing balance of power and sensitivity.

He is joined by the remarkable young Siberianborn pianist Pavel Kolesnikov, celebrated for the astonishing freshness of his spellbinding playing, for a wide-ranging recital of classic Lieder.

They open with a broad Schubert collection – from the joyous affirmation of Die Taubenpost to the gruesome Romantic horror of Der Zwerg – and travel through dramatic songs by Schumann and Grieg’s achingly melodious Sechs Lieder to a new work by contemporary German composer Matthias Pintscher.

This concert will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 3.
