They begin with a selection of Bellini’s three small arias, followed by Strauss’ Four Last songs, written when he was in his 80s. After the interval Amber performs songs by fellow Americans Barber and Ives, before closing the recital with Wagner’s five song settings of poetry by Mathilde Wesendonck.
