ONYX is proud to present an exceptional Schumann recital by the outstanding Austrian baritone Florian Boesch. The recital consists of the greatest Heine settings, the op24 Liederkreis, plus many of the great Romances and Ballads including Belshazzar (Belsatzar). Boesch is rapidly becoming known as one of the most truthfully dramatic lieder interpreters of our day, and made a sensational debut at the Edinburgh Festival in 2005 with Martineau.
Florian Boesch studied in Vienna with Robert Holl. In 2003 he made his operatic debut with Opernhaus Zürich as Papageno, and is now working with many of the world’s greatest conductors including Gergiev, Bychkov, Harnoncourt, Herreweghe, Viotti and Adam Fischer.
Despite his opera work he is perhaps unusual in devoting much of his time to lieder with performances at London’s Wigmore Hall, Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Edinburgh Festival, Mozarteum Salzburg, Wiener Konzerthaus, Palais des Beaux-Arts Brussels, the Schubertiade Festival Schwarzenberg.

3rd May 2009
“The Austrian baritone opens with an exquisitely gauged Liederkreis, Op 24, full of subtle emotional twists and turns. The rest is a carefully varied selection of settings of words by Heine.”
1st May 2009
“Having an accompanist as perceptive and exquisitely musical as Malcolm Martineau is a big asset, these are lieder performances of very high quality indeed.”
Awards Issue 2009
“There is much to enjoy in Boesch's dramatic, intensely "lived" performances, and in the imaginative playing of Malcolm Martineau (ultra-sensitive in Schumann's secretive piano postludes).”
