The final instalment of Leeds Lieder's series of recitals exploring the songs of Franz Schubert.

Ashley Riches (bass-baritone) Joseph Middleton (piano)

Franz Schubert – Schwanengesang

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 Johnson’s complete Poulenc Songs for Hyperion.

To draw our Schubert series to a close he performs the great non-cycle, Schubert’s Schwanengesang alongside what many label the genre’s first song-cycle, Beethoven’s hymn to a distant beloved.
