Bryn Terfel & Malcolm Martineau

Schubert, Britten & Brahms

Superstar of the opera and concert stage in a recital combining tender Lieder by Schubert with the compelling passions of songs by high Romantic Brahms.

Songs by Schubert, Britten, Brahms and Meirion Williams

Superstar of the opera and concert stage, Bryn Terfel has a voice that can fill the world’s greatest opera houses, and a musical personality just as warm and charismatic. From Wagner to folk song, the great Welsh bass baritone mines drama from all he sings, blending vast power and subtlety in his unforgettably rich, expressive voice.

He is joined by Edinburgh-born pianist Malcolm Martineau, one of his closest musical collaborators – and pianist of choice for countless world-renowned singers – in a recital that combines tender Lieder by Schubert, the compelling passions of songs by high Romantic Brahms, and the touching evocations of Terfel’s compatriot Meirion Williams.
