  • Dame Sarah Connolly mezzo-soprano

Having previously performed in Mark-Anthony Turnage’s operas The Silver Tassie and Twice Through the Heart, the outstanding mezzo-soprano introduces a new work by one of our finest composers, premièred at this year’s Aldeburgh Festival. It is followed by songs from the Second Viennese School, as well as Chausson’s rapturous cycle, premièred in 1893 with the composer at the piano.
