Radio 3 New Generation Artist and finalist in the 2015 Cardiff Singer of the World competition, Ilker Arcayürek (tenor) makes his Wigmore Hall debut. He is joined by pianist Simon Lepper to perform songs by Schubert to texts by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and Schumann's song cycle Dichterliebe, Op. 48, which draws on 16 poems from Heinrich Heine's collection Lyrisches Intermezzo. Schumann arranged them into story of love which is briefly enjoyed and then irrevocably lost.
