  • Alice Coote mezzo-soprano
  • Christian Blackshaw piano

World-renowned mezzo-soprano Alice Coote joins forces with leading pianist Christian Blackshaw for a heartfelt exploration of the human soul in love. Coote’s sensitive and transfixing interpretation of the texts, coupled with Blackshaw’s intense and elegant musical expression, bring unique insights to this sublime collection of Lieder.

From the passion of ‘Widmung’, ‘Du bist wie eine Blume’ and ‘Die Lotusblume’, to jewels of the Lieder repertoire Frauenliebe und –leben and Dichterliebe, these kaleidoscopic explorations of love are captured live in recital at Wigmore Hall.
