Ludwig van Beethoven An die ferne Geliebte
Songs by Joseph Haydn
A BBC New Generation Artist, bass-baritone Ashley Riches read English at Cambridge University, before studying at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and as a Jette Parker Young Artist at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden.
Recent appearances have included with the Berlin Philharmonic/Sir John Eliot Gardiner, the Philharmonia Orchestra/Esa-Pekka Salonen, the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and at Wigmore Hall.
Increasingly recognised as a superb song singer, he appears on Graham Johnsons complete Poulenc Songs for Hyperion.
To draw our Schubert series to a close he performs the great non-cycle, Schuberts Schwanengesang alongside what many label the genres first song-cycle, Beethovens hymn to a distant beloved.
