Strauss, Debussy & Schumann: Louise Alder, Stef van Herten & Sholto Kynoch

15 October 2018, 7:30pm 20 June 2024 - 4:24pm

One of Debussy’s major song cycles, the Ariettes oubliées, sits alongside songs by Strauss and Schumann, plus works for horn and voice by Strauss, Saint-Saëns, Donizetti and others. Louise Alder, fresh from winning the Audience Prize at the BBC Cardiff Singer of the World, gave a sensational performance at the opening night of last year’s Festival, hailed by the Spectator for her ‘rapt intensity and vivid emotional storytelling’. She is joined by renowned horn player Stef van Herten, a member of the orchestra of the prestigious Oper Frankfurt.
