Schubert, Beethoven, Britten, and Hahn: Songs – Matthew Polenzani (tenor), Julius Drake (piano)

Often referred to as one of the most gifted and distinguished lyric tenors of his generation, Matthew Polenzani has been praised for the artistic versatility and fresh lyricism that he brings to concert and operatic appearances on leading international stages. He has performed, among many others, opposite Renée Fleming, Anna Netrebko, and Diana Damrau, and under the baton of Lorin Maazel, Pierre Boulez, and Riccardo Muti.

In this, his debut Wigmore Hall recital, accompanied by the masterly Julius Drake, Polenzani brings together works by Hahn, Beethoven, Britten, and Schubert, including An die ferne Geliebte and the Seven Sonnets of Michelangelo.



"Polenzani demonstrates his aptitude for lieder in this fine recital from Wigmore Hall ... With his characteristically tight vibrato, sweetly melifluous voice, excellent enunciation, and firm breath control, Polenzani is one of the best lyric tenors of our time. As always, Julius Drake offers exemplary collaboration..."
