Valentina Naforniţa Soprano
Roger Vignoles Piano

Lieder and songs by Fauré, Liszt, Bartók, Rachmaninov, Tchaikovsky and Dvořák.

Winner of the 2011 BBC Cardiff Singer of the World competition, Moldovan-born soprano Valentina Naforniţa has quickly established herself as one of the world’s most sought-after younger singers, acclaimed for both her vivid opera performances and her vibrant concert recitals displaying her fine voice and sensual characterisation.

Partnered by Roger Vignoles, piano accompanist to a host of renowned singers, she performs a selection of richly Romantic songs, including colourful gypsy melodies by Dvořák, intense Russian vocal works by Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, and Fauré’s evocative Chanson d’amour and Le secret.

This concert will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 3
