Catriona Morison
& Simon Lepper

Cardiff Singer of the World winner in recital

Catriona Morison Mezzo soprano
Simon Lepper Piano 

Songs by Brahms, Schumann and Mahler.

Winner of 2017’s BBC Cardiff Singer of the World competition – the first ever British winner of the world-renowned contest – Edinburgh-born Catriona Morison is a major singing talent, with a natural dramatic flair, a silky vocal tone and a sophisticated musical intelligence.

Experience Morison’s hugely characterful singing in her International Festival debut recital, for which she’s joined by the fine British pianist Simon Lepper.

After a rich collection of songs by Brahms – including the intense An die Nachtigall and poignant charm Meine Liebe ist grün – Morison and Lepper perform the heartrending settings of poems by Mary, Queen of Scots, in Schumann’s Gedichte der Königin Maria Stuart. They close their recital with Mahler’s powerfully evocative Rückert Lieder, and the lavish opulence of Korngold’s Fünf Lieder Op 38.
