‹ Back to What's On Anne Schwanewilms and Malcolm Martineau

19 Jan 2017

Meadows in the Dusk

Praised by the New York Times for her ‘vocal refinement’ and ‘pliant lyricism’, Anne Schwanewilms ranks among today’s finest lyric sopranos.

She is a supremely gifted Straussian and one of the foremost interpreters of late Romantic opera and song.

In partnership with pianist Malcolm Martineau she showcases her soaring, crystalline voice with a compellingly beautiful and varied programme of Strauss and Wolf songs.

Part of an exclusive tour of the finest recital halls that include London's Wigmore Hall and New York's Alice Tully Hall.

Her voice is ideally suited to the demands of Strauss, capable of transparent lightness at the top, but with enough weight to power through a long phrase.

— Washington Post

...unfailing instinct for the finest details of phrasing and timing.

— The Guardian
