Young German-born soprano Anna Prohaska has been hailed as one of the most exciting voices of her generation, praised for her kaleidoscopic vocal colours as well as for the warmth and power of her impeccably elegant singing.
Her evocative recital with pianist Eric Schneider brings together soldiers' songs from across the classical repertoire, celebrating heroism as well as providing moving testimony to the pity and tragedy of conflict – from Beethoven's glorious Die Trommel gerühret to Fauré's bittersweet C'est la paix, by way of folk songs and even an Orkney lament.
