This morning I received the concert cancellation notice from Wigmore Hall box office. It is a shame, but more than that, I am sorry for the loss of Simon and his family. With heartfelt condolences. Kew

Here is the program as currently listed by Wigmore:
BRAHMS: Ueber die Heide; Wir wandelten; Es schauen die Blumen; Meerfahrt; Auf dem Kirchhofe; Staendchen.
STRAUSS: Die Nacht; Allerseelen; All’ mein Gedanken; Efeu; Staendchen; Wasserrose; Wie sollten wir geheim.
PFITZNER: Zweifelnde Liebe; Nachtwanderer.
WOLF: Auf einer Wanderung; In der Fruehe; Wo find’ ich Trost; Der Feuerreiter; Gesang Weylas; An die Geliebte; Bei einer Trauung; Storchenbotschaft.
Maybe SK is reserving Zueignung and Abschied for encores??

I see on the Wigmore Hall web site many changes to the program announced earlier and detailed above. They also list the Wolf Lieder SK is singing.

Hello again Elizabeth,
I have just realised that my ticket for Macbeth is also for Mon 13th June!

Hi Elizabeth,
I am going to Pell and Mel on April 19th and I too would love to meet up with other SK fans. I had a similar experience booking for Macbeth. I was in a virtual queue on the ROH website for ages – behind over 1600 people!!!! but I did finally buy my ticket. I was very, very disappointed that there were no tickets left for the Wigmore Hall recital…
Hey, btw I live in South Devon so it’s a bit of a mission for me to get to London too, but it has to be done!

Wow! All the tickets have gone before a general booking? Just like the one done by J. Kaufmann in November last year?

I, too like John, look forward to the reports of this sold-out recital posted by lucky subscribers. But, I think we all may have a chance to listen to it on the BBC Radio 3 since they have done so far the recitals of this 100 years of German song series. I just hope they will air it in one go instead of dividing it into a couple of sections. Let’s keep our fingers crossed!

Hi all SK admirers,
Have just managed to book Macbeth at ROH on first opening day of booking (after about 30 mins hanging on!)for Monday June 13th, also going to his Pell and Mell at Barbican on Apr 19th. As I live in Cardiff this is a beeeeg commitment to visit London – but if pos, one just have to do it!! And now this lieder programme what shall I do!
I can’t remember where to find the other SK fans have said they are going to Pell and Mell, be brilliant if they would like to meet up with me at Barbican, what do you think?
Can I meet SK team there? Give you my big big thanks personally for this brill site
Regards to all

Hi all,
Whew!! That’s quite a juicy program Simon is doing at Wigmore Hall on June 28, five Brahms Lieder, including Wir wandelten, one of my favorites; four Pfitzer songs that would be new discoveries for me; eight Strauss, including Zueignung, which as far as I can tell SK has never sung or programmed, and other better or lesser known Lieder; and a mystery selection of Wolf Lieder to texts by Moerike and Goethe – perhaps ending with Abschied?? I hope some of the subscribers lucky enough to get tickets will give a detailed account afterwards to us outsiders waiting with our noses (or ears) pressed up against the glass.
