The young British baritone Christopher Maltman excels on the recital platform. Here he performs songs by Schubert, Wolf, Debussy, Duparc and Warlock with boundless charm and with a voice of astounding sensitivity, powerfully conveying an array of mixed emotions throughout.

Superbly aided by Julius Drake, Maltman's dramatic interpretations are unsurpassed; his performance of Duparc’s La vague et la cloche was described by The Guardian as a ‘tour de force of baleful intensity’, in contrast to his ‘funny, bitingly satirical and faultless’ interpretation of Flanders & Swann’s Misalliance, sung as an encore.
