But I like to sing ... Carolyn Sampson + Joseph Middleton
Carolyn Sampson is ‘the best British early music soprano by quite some distance’ according to Gramophone. But she is also one of the most in-demand lieder singers in the world, together with pianist Joseph Middleton, with whom she enjoys a close-knit collaboration. It is, therefore, high time for a concert in the Great Singers series by Sampson, whose voice bears some resemblance to her idol, Elly Ameling. This ‘voice to fall in love with’ (NRC) effortlessly travels through three hundred years of song history.
Carolyn Sampson studied violin and piano and used to think that becoming a singer would always remain a dream. Until the local choir director advised her to audition for The Sixteen. Sampson quickly became one of the most important voices of early music. She proves that Sampson can also handle the song repertoire from the 19th and 20th centuries more than well in this colourful recital tonight.
