Additional notes

Change of Artist
We are delighted to hear the news that Elizabeth Watts (soprano) is pregnant and fully understand that she is unable to proceed with some of her concerts during this time.

As a result, Mary Bevan (soprano) has very kindly agreed to take over this concert. The programme remains the same.


  • Mary Bevan soprano
  • Simon Lepper piano

Schubert discovered Schiller’s poetry in his early teens and was moved to create his first setting of ‘Des Mädchens Klage’ soon after.

Mary Bevan surveys a selection of the composer’s Schiller songs before exploring works to poems by another titan of the Romantic era, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, and concluding with Schubert’s passionate evocations of love and desire in his settings of Suleika.
