A Tribute to Hans Hotter - Songs by Schubert, Brahms and Wolf

Shenyang (bass-baritone)
Llyr Williams (piano)

Llyr Williams first worked with Shenyang in 2007, when Llyr accompanied Shenyang through the BBC Cardiff Singer of the World competition. Shenyang went on to be crowned overall champion.

Shenyang created this programme as a special tribute to one of his greatest musical heroes: Hans Hotter, the legendary German bass-baritone. Shenyang says "I never met Hans Hotter but, even so, I learned a lot from him. He had a very special style of singing which you don't find today."
