Benjamin Appl and Pavel Kolesnikov

Live from the Edinburgh Festival, German baritone Benjamin Appl and pianist Pavel Kolesnikov perform a selection of lieder by Schubert, Schumann and Grieg plus Matthias Pintscher.

The German baritone Benjamin Appl is joined by pianist Pavel Kolesnikov for a broad selection of Schubert lieder in the first half of today's recital, live from the Queen's Hall in Edinburgh. Schumann's settings of one of his favourite poets, Heinrich Heine, open the second half, before a new work by German composer and conductor Matthias Pintscher. Finally, we hear Greig's Sechs Lieder, perhaps the closest works that Grieg wrote to Romantic German lieder style.
