Wolf, Schubert, Schumann, Meyerbeer

Live from the Wigmore Hall, London presented by Petroc Trelawny
Goethe's Heroines: soprano, Elizabeth Watts and pianist, Roger Vignoles explore the enduring appeal of the great German literary celebrity, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.
The tragically Romantic figures of Gretchen and Mignon, haunting evocations of distant lands and the poet's ability to view aspects of the human condition from apparently infinite perspectives all promise a fascinating emotional journey in the company of one of Britain's most exciting singing talents.
