Patron of The Rudolf Kempe Society

I am very flattered and delighted to be Patron of the Rudolf Kempe Society as successor to the late Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau. I admire Cordula Kempe so much and think the work that she does is tremendous.

Do come to her wonderful programmes of word and music, Songs of Apollo - in which I have taken part myself and thoroughly enjoyed! And don’t miss the concerts given by the extremely talented musicians of the Rudolf Kempe International Young Artists Platform!

Also given at the uniquely congenial atmosphere of the KEMPE STUDIO at THE MUSES in Stratford, the Society's new series of creative and inspiring Public Master Classes awaits you, with an international line-up of great artists of today teaching the great artists of tomorrow!

Sparks from Heaven - Sunday October 22nd 2017

In its ongoing series Celebration of Young Voices - in Association with the Royal Academy of Music

The Society welcomes an outstandingly talented young tenor, KIERAN CARREL, with his pianist partner ZUZANNA BASINSKA for a Lieder recital of songs from J.S. BACH to GUSTAV MAHLER.

Kieran – of German-English extraction – studied in Cologne with the renowned German tenor Christoph Prégardien, one of today’s finest Lieder interpreters, before continuing his studies in London with distinguished Scottish tenor Neil Mackie at the Royal Academy of Music.

Aged only 21, Kieran is already in demand internationally in both opera and oratorio, but his preferred genre is the Lied.

Under the title Thoughts Beyond Here and Now he has devised a programme that is appropriate to the season, full of rich autumn colours, made up by some of the most beautiful poems which the greatest Lied composers – Schumann, Schubert, Mozart, Brahms, Wolf and Mahler - have set to music. A rare treat!
