    Spring Vocal Recitals in Weill Recital Hall Feature Sopranos Sophie Kartäuser and Kate Royal

    CARNEGIE HALL PRESENTS SPRING VOCAL RECITALS IN
    WEILL RECITAL HALL BY SOPRANOS
    SOPHIE KARTÄUSER ON APRIL 28 AND KATE ROYAL ON MAY 20
     

      Soprano Sophie Karthäuser makes her New York recital debut in Weill Recital Hall on Thursday, April 28 at 7:30 p.m. with pianist Eugene Asti. Her varied program includes songs by Mozart, Schubert, Wolf, Fauré, Debussy, and Poulenc. She last performed at Carnegie Hall with the Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique in 2009 singing Hadyn’s Creation in Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage. The New York Times noted of her performance, “Sophie Karthäuser, a soprano (Gabriel), sang beautifully, with rounded, pearly tone and great agility. Her coloratura and added ornamentation in the “bird aria” were particular delights.”

      The following month, on Friday, May 20 at 7:30 p.m., soprano Kate Royal brings a program with pianist Christopher Glynn titled A Lesson in Love, after her recently released album for the EMI Classics label. Ms. Royal explains the wide-ranging repertoire she has pulled together, with songs spanning two centuries, three languages, and 20 composers, ranging from German lieder and French melodies to English and American songs, “A Lesson in Love is a song cycle that I have devised, telling the story of a young girl’s first experience of love. We travel with her on her journey from an eager anticipation of love to her marriage and the sudden and heartbreaking realization that she has been betrayed. …Performing them in this way gives one the chance to really experience the core emotion of each song. It also gives the poems a place within a larger picture and, I hope, shines a light on these marvelous miniature works.” For a sample of works to be performed at the concert, click here.

    After each concert, ticketholders are invited to mix, mingle, and have an after-concert drink (first one is compliments of Carnegie Hall) in the Jacobs Room as part of Carnegie Hall’s Salon Encores series.
