The Wigmore Hall debut of young Bavarian soprano Christiane Karg in July 2012 proved a glistening highlight of the summer’s song recital series. A regular guest at the world’s leading opera houses, singing roles from Musetta (La bohème) to Poppea (L’incoronazione di Poppea), she is also renowned throughout the world for her enchanting performances on the concert platform.

Her recital featured two themes to link the programme: botanical in the first half, nocturnal in the second. Exploring celebrated jewels of the art song repertoire alongside lesser-known, but equally charming, discoveries, the programme moves from rarely heard floral songs from Strauss’s teens, through dreamy settings by Fauré, Debussy and Poulenc, mysterious and nocturnal Lieder of Wolf to Berg’s 'Sieben frühe Lieder'.

Gramophone Magazine

December 2013

“some of the most natural, straightforward Wolf performances I've encountered. So deeply has she embodied the material that she seems to live the songs rather than projecting them as an outside entity. A minor miracle?”

BBC Music Magazine

January 2014

*****

“[Karg] has a natural ease with tempo, underpinned, of course, by Martineau as the ever-perfect foil at the piano...[the voice] is fresh and clear. She is certainly not lacking in honeyed warmth in the Strauss songs...a thoroughly enjoyable recital.”
