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:
Frondi tenere… Ombra mai fu (Serse) - G. F. Handel
Svegliatevi nel’ core (Giulio Cesare in Egitto) - G. F. Handel
Thy hand, Belinda… When I am laid in earth (Dido and Aeneas) - H. Purcell
Va! Laisse couler mes larmes (Werther) - J. Massenet
Werther, Werther(Werther) - J. Massenet
D’amour l’ardente flamme (La Damnation de Faust) - H. Berlioz
L’invitation au voyage - H. Duparc
Gretchen am Spinnrade Op. 2 - F. Schubert
Habanera - G. Bizet
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!
