  • James Newby baritone
  • Simon Lepper piano

Schubert’s great cycle forms the entire programme of this duo recital by a rising star baritone and one of our finest collaborative pianists. ‘Newby can do it all,’ wrote the Flemish newspaper De Standaard in 2020, ‘and does it with more finesse and maturity than you would expect from a twenty something’, while last year Gramophone suggested that the singer’s debut disc ‘announces an impressive artist … whose natural communicative gift shines through in every note.’

  • Franz Schubert (1797-1828)
      • Die schöne Müllerin D795
