Tenor Mark Padmore is deftly supported by fortepianist Kristian Bezuidenhout in this lieder recital of Heine settings by Robert Schumann and Franz Lachner (5 songs from Sängerfahrt). On October 27 Mark and Kristian perform this programme at Carnegie Hall. Here in the UK, Mark is singing Schwanengesang with Paul Lewis and Roger Vignoles during October whilst in November Mark and Kristian are at the Concertgebouw. Die schöne Müllerin is accompanied by Till Fellner in Germany and France and UK audiences have to wait until December 6 to hear Mark Padmore and Kristian Bezuidenhout perform Dichterliebe and Lachner’s Heine Lieder at London’s Wigmore Hall.

Bezuidenhout's second volume of Mozart will be released in January 2011.
