About this Event
A four day festival of recitals, masterclasses, talks, workshops and informal discovery events, championing and celebrating art-song under the Artistic Directorship of pianist Joseph Middleton.
Supported by Arts Council England, Leeds Lieder places song at the centre of the cultural landscape in the north of England, championing the art-form, and growing audiences. An array of world-class artists will appear in Leeds for an enthralling and varied concert programme, featuring cornerstones of the Lieder repertoire alongside works written especially for this year’s Festival. Legend of the opera stage and master of the recital platform, Sir Thomas Allen, appears at the Guest of Honour. An ambitious education programme, interactive and informative events for children, poets and amateur singers complement the performance programme.
