For the final Temple Song concert of the year we are delighted to welcome back much-loved and world renowned mezzo Dame Sarah Connolly. Accompanied by Julius Drake she will open the programme with Schumann’s sincere and emotional cycle of love songs, and follow it with his popular biographical setting of the words of Mary Queen of Scots. Songs by Gustav Mahler, for which Sarah Connolly has earned great acclaim, are also featured alongside those of his wife Alma.

For British mezzos, the lineage of prior interpreters is daunting. Sarah Connolly has nothing to fear from the comparison. Her instrument might be strong and luminous, but it also has a fragility, like stained glass.
