    One of today’s most distinctive and celebrated singers, German soprano Dorothea Röschmann is a regular International Festival visitor, famed for the emotional intensity and dramatic characterisations of her exceptional performances.

    Joined by British pianist Roger Vignoles, musical partner to many of the world’s greatest singers, Röschmann performs a rich, moving collection of Romantic song, from the aching beauty of Schubert and Wolf’s Goethe settings in their Mignon Lieder, to the warmth of Schumann’s inspirational song-cycle tribute to a woman’s life and loves. They close with Wolf’s captivating mini-drama of betrayal and sorrow, Der verlassene Mägdlein.
