Dorothea Roschmann and Roger Vignoles

Live from the Queen’s Hall in Edinburgh, celebrated German soprano Dorothea Roschmann is joined by pianist Roger Vignoles for works by Schubert, Schumann and Wolf.

German soprano Dorothea Röschmann returns to the Edinburgh International Festival with British pianist Roger Vignoles for a live recital of rich Romantic song. They begin with Schubert’s Mignon lieder, a collection of intimate expressive songs inspired by a rescued Italian girl ‘Mignon', a character from Goethe’s novel Wilhelm Meisters Lehrjahre. The recital ends with Wolf’s achingly melodious take on that same Goethe character after a selection of his Mörike lieder. In between, Schumann’s eight-part song-cycle, following a heroines first love, childbirth and betrayal.
