Hailed as “the best British early-music soprano by quite some distance” (Gramophone), Carolyn Sampson comes to Carnegie Hall to perform a recital of delightful art songs and arias by influential British composer Henry Purcell. Hear for yourself why “she tops virtually every Baroque conductor's wish list of soloists” (The Independent, London).
This concert is part of Salon Encores.
