Michael Volle & Helmut Deutsch

The powerhouse German baritone performs a gloriously dramatic programme of Schubert, Mahler and Strauss.

Schubert Der Taucher
Mahler Selection from Des Knaben Wunderhorn
Strauss Three Lieder from Op 87 
Mahler Selection from Rückert-Lieder 

Powerhouse German baritone Michael Volle is a star of the international opera stage, and one of today’s most exciting interpreters of Wagner, Strauss, Verdi and more. With a voice of huge strength and kaleidoscopic colour, he’s also a masterful recitalist – and performs a gloriously dramatic, romantic programme for his return to the International Festival.

Joined by regular recital partner Helmut Deutsch, a respected piano soloist in his own right, Volle explores the one-man mini-opera of medieval romance and valiant chivalry in Schubert’s gripping cliffhanger Der Taucher, alongside the blistering heroism and bawdy humour of a selection from Mahler’s Wunderhorn songs.

He closes with three opulent Lieder by Richard Strauss, and the ravishing, lyrical beauty of Mahler’s intimate Rückert-Lieder.

This concert will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 3.
