René Pape
& Camillo Radicke

Songs by Beethoven, Dvořák & Musorgsky
Monday 14 August 2017
The Queen's Hall

Beethoven Gellert Lieder Op 48
Dvořák Biblical Songs Op 99
Quilter Three Shakespeare Songs Op 6
Musorgsky Songs and Dances of Death

With an astonishingly rich, powerful voice, German singer René Pape is one of the world’s leading basses, as subtly nuanced in his singing as he is commanding in his vocal energy. He is just as at home singing Wagner on some of the world’s great opera stages as he is in intimate concert recitals, with penetrating insights and high artistry marking out all of his performances.

Joined by German pianist Camillo Radicke, a regular recital collaborator, Pape delivers a concert of spirituality and dark drama, from the astonishing concentration of Beethoven’s impassioned Gellert settings and Dvořák’s contemplative Biblical Songs to the chilling storytelling of Musorgsky’s mini-dramas on encounters with death.

This concert will be broadcast on BBC Radio 3 on 23 August
