The Wigmore Hall debut of young Bavarian soprano Christiane Karg in July 2012 proved a glistening highlight of the summer’s song recital series. A regular guest at the world’s leading opera houses, singing roles from Musetta (La bohème) to Poppea (L’incoronazione di Poppea), she is also renowned throughout the world for her enchanting performances on the concert platform.

Her recital featured two themes to link the programme: botanical in the first half, nocturnal in the second. Exploring celebrated jewels of the art song repertoire alongside lesser-known, but equally charming, discoveries, the programme moves from rarely heard floral songs from Strauss’s teens, through dreamy settings by Fauré, Debussy and Poulenc, mysterious and nocturnal Lieder of Wolf to Berg’s Sieben frühe Lieder.

Christoph Zimmermann - Fono Forum magazine (Germany) - July 2014


                        Performance *****         Recording ****

"...Karg’s operatic roles reveal a voice that is fresh and clear ... a thoroughly enjoyable recital."

Christopher Dingle - BBC Music magazine - January 2013


"...Here is a singer poised to become a major player in art-song performance internationally ... Warmly recommended."

Roger Pines - International Record Review - December 2013


"... Her [Karg] sound and vocal production pleasantly recall that of Lucia Popp, though with a technical ease that is especially apparent in the Wolf songs. While some singers make heavy weather of Wolf while conveying the music’s depths, Karg lets any remaining srtifice drop away in some of the most natural, straightfforward Wolf performances I’ve encountered. So deeply has she embodied the material that she seems to live the songs rather than projecting them as an outside entity..."

David Patrick Stearns - Gramophone magazine - December 2013
