MOOD SWINGS: the roles of a mezzo recital and CD LAUNCH at WOORDFEES 2019

So tomorrow (2 March at 15:00) I will be performing the recital I have been waiting to perform for a long time.

I will perform the following repertoire:


  1. Frondi tenere… Ombra mai fu (Serse) - G. F. Handel

  2. Svegliatevi nel’ core (Giulio Cesare in Egitto) - G. F. Handel

  3. Thy hand, Belinda… When I am laid in earth (Dido and Aeneas) - H. Purcell

  4. Va! Laisse couler mes larmes (Werther) - J. Massenet

  5. Werther, Werther(Werther) - J. Massenet

  6. D’amour l’ardente flamme (La Damnation de Faust) - H. Berlioz

  7. L’invitation au voyage - H. Duparc

  8. Gretchen am Spinnrade Op. 2 - F. Schubert

  9. Habanera - G. Bizet

  10. Una voce poco fa - G. Rossini


Most of this repertoire forms part of my standard audition repertoire. It has been grooving into my body and voice for quite a while, and it is just so great to have an opportunity where I can perform a lot of it for an audience in such a great hall as the Endler in Stellenbosch. Elna van der Merwe, as in the CD recording, will be with me on stage all the way. She is just so great. Such a wonderful musician and colleague.


I look forward to seeing you there should it be possible for you to attend. It is going to be grand!
