Benjamin Appl & Simon Lepper Recital

Event details

Tickets Available.

In their Festival debuts, two renowned artists—baritone Benjamin Appl, called “the most promising of today’s up-and-coming song recitalists” by the Financial Times, and pianist Simon Lepper—present The Sound of Silence, an intimate recital program that focuses on pauses and silences in music as well as on introspection as the starting point for inspiration. Appl was one of legendary German baritone Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau’s final students, and here he showcases his extraordinary artistry in Schumann’s complete Liederkreis, an arresting Gregorian chant, and moving works by Schubert, Monteverdi, Richard Strauss, and other masters.
