We are delighted to welcome Louise Alder, 2017 BBC Cardiff Singer of the World competition Audience Prize-winner and University of Edinburgh graduate, and her regular recital partner Gary Matthewman. Louise’s meteoric rise to international prominence has already featured performances at the Royal Opera House, La Scala Milan, San Francisco Opera and Glyndebourne, and she has become a regular soloist at the BBC Proms.

This beautifully crafted recital programme includes works by celebrated classical song-writers alongside rare treasures from composers more usually associated with the world of opera.

“An irresistible programme, sung with a beguiling twinkle in the eye, keen intelligence, and a voice of sparkling beauty.” –Gramophone Magazine on Louise Alder

“(…) a seriously accomplished recital duo – soprano Louise Alder with pianist Gary Matthewman – who are clearly going places.” –The Telegraph
