Mezzo-soprano Alice Coote is regarded as one of the great artists of our day. Equally famed on the great operatic stages as in concert and recital she has been named the ‘superlative British Mezzo’ (San Francisco Chronicle). Her performances have been described as ‘breathtaking in sheer conviction and subtlety of perception’ (The Times) and her voice as ‘beautiful… but, more importantly, it thrills you to the marrow.’ (The Daily Telegraph). 


The recital platform is central to her musical life, and she performs throughout the UK, Europe and the US, at the Wigmore Hall (where she has been a resident artist), the BBC Proms, Concertgebouw, Vienna Konzerthaus, Lincoln Centre NY and Carnegie Hall, among many other prestigious venues.


In this rare Scottish recital appearance, she is joined pianist Christian Blackshaw to perform Beethoven’s song cycle ‘An die ferne geliebte’ alongside music by Mahler and Schubert.
