What's On

Diana Damrau in recital

The German soprano launches her exploration of the music of Richard Strauss in the most personal way – with an evening of solo song.

Diana Damrau is a singer who seems to have it all: capable both of dazzling vocal fireworks, and a richness and intelligence that takes her right into the heart of the German romantic repertoire. This recital launches a series of concerts in which she sings the music of Richard Strauss.

True: London audiences probably know Damrau best as a fearless Lucia di Lammermoor or a heartrending Violetta Valéry at Covent Garden. But her instinct for characterisation informs everything she performs, making her a near-ideal champion of Strauss’s songs: each one – like the Wolf and Liszt songs with which she completes this recital – a miniature music-drama in its own right.
