Leeds Lieder presents the first in a series of concerts exploring the songs of Franz Schubert.

Nika Gorič (soprano) James Newby (baritone) Joseph Middleton (piano)

Programme to include songs and duets by Schubert in settings from Goethe’s Wilhelm Meister

Two of the finest British-trained young singers open our Schubert series. James Newby, prizewinner in the Kathleen Ferrier Awards and Wigmore Hall International Song Competition makes a welcome return to Leeds Lieder following his outstanding recital for BBC Radio 3 in our Mahler series last season. He is joined by Nika Gorič whose recent performances have taken her to the Salzburg Young Singers Programme, Verbier Festival, Wigmore Hall and Vienna Musikverein. She has recently been selected as a YCAT artist. They will perform solos and duets from that inspired partnership: Goethe and Schubert.

6:30pm: Pre-concert talk by Dr Clive McClelland

Tickets: £20. Free for students and under 16s
