Equally acclaimed for her vocal prowess and her acting in roles ranging from Baroque to 20th-century repertoire, English mezzo-soprano Sarah Connolly is the winner of Edison, Gramophone, and South Bank Awards. Reviewing her 2013 CD of Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde, Gramophone wrote, “What can there be left to say about Sarah Connolly, whose performances these days are pretty much beyond praise?” She is joined at this recital by “rising star” (BBC Music Magazine) Joseph Middleton at the keyboard.
