Robert Schumann: Dichterliebe op. 48 (1840)
Im wunderschönen Monat Mai
Aus meinen Tränen spriessen
Die Rose, die Lilie, die Taube, die Sonne
Wenn ich in deine Augen seh’
Ich will meine Seele tauchen
Im Rhein, im heiligen Strome
Ich grolle nicht
Und wüssten’s die Blumen, die kleinen
Das ist ein Flöten und Geigen
Hör’ ich das Liedchen klingen
Ein Jüngling liebt ein Mädchen
Am leuchtenden Sommermorgen
Ich hab’ im Traum geweinet
Allnächtlich im Traume
Aus alten Märchen
Die alten, bösen Lieder

Encore

Franz Schubert: Die Sterne

Together with renowned pianist Malcolm Martineau, Simon Keenlyside will be performing Schumann’s Dichterliebe together with songs by Faure, Ravel and Debussy.  Internationally renowned operatic baritone Simon Keenlyside CBE, is taking a break from his European song recital tour (London, Vienna and Madrid) to fit in a concert at Cambridge’s West Road Concert Hall. The concert will help raise funds for local charity, English Pocket Opera Company/Music Platform.

Artistic director of EPOC, Mark Tinkler says of his friend’s visit: “We are very excited to be welcoming Simon back to Cambridge, he is an artist of exceptional quality and a great friend to the company and we are looking forward to some ravishing French and German songs!”

Mark added: “This is a rare opportunity to hear this great operatic artist.  Simon was last in Cambridge in 2005.  If you missed seeing Simon at the Wigmore Hall or as Marquis de Posa in the Royal Opera House’s recent production of Don Carlos, now is your chance.”
