Bernarda Fink Mezzo Soprano
Anthony Spiri Piano

Supported by
Edinburgh International Festival Benefactors

Tuesday 13 August
  • Running time: 
    1 hour, 45 minutes

Eloquence and elegance characterise Argentinian-born mezzo soprano Bernarda Fink’s raptuorously received recitals. Acclaimed both for her golden-toned voice and for her subtle characterisations, Fink offers vivid, deeply expressive song performances.

With her regular recital partner, US-born pianist Anthony Spiri, she traces a journey from the sombre, emotionally complexLenau-Lieder of Schumann through to the joyful, folk-inspiredSeven Popular Spanish Songs by Manuel de Falla.

In between, she contrasts vivid settings from Des Knaben Wunderhorn by Mahler with Debussy’s evocative Trois mélodies, dreamy settings of poems by Paul Verlaine.
