Karen Cargill
& Simon Lepper

Intimate French song
Thursday 10 August 2017
The Queen's Hall

Songs and melodies by Debussy, Chausson, Duparc and Hahn

Much-loved Scottish mezzo soprano Karen Cargill is a powerful Wagnerian with a voice that can fill the Met or Covent Garden. Equally she brings tenderness and poetry to her captivating concert recitals.

She is joined by regular recital partner, pianist Simon Lepper, for an intimate exploration of sophisticated French song through the ages.

Together they travel through the decadent delicacy of songs by Chausson, including Le charme and Les papillons, and on to the sensual sentimentality of Hahn’s Infidelité and L’enamourée, alongside exquisite vocal evocations by Duparc and Debussy.

This concert will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 3
