“Here, finally, was a singer who could control multiple dimensions, singing with fervent intensity …” wrote The New York Times of mezzo-soprano Karen Cargill. She brings her intensity and “sumptuous voice” (The Guardian) to a program of German songs that include Mahler’s emotional Rückert Lieder and Wagner’s ardent Wesendonck Lieder, composed while he was working on his opera Tristan und Isolde.
