German singer Andreas Scholl is one of classical music’s superstars, and has introduced countless listeners to the irresistible beauty of his countertenor voice.
His acclaimed performances match exquisite grace in his singing with a charismatic stage presence, packed full of passion and an arresting freedom of expression.
Joined by pianist Tamar Halperin, he delivers a wide-ranging programme of Classical and Romantic song, from the drama of Schubert’s Death and the Maiden to delightful folk-song settings by Brahms.
‘few can equal the sheer beauty of tone and dramatic instinct displayed by Andreas Scholl.’
