FLORIAN BOESCH versatile singer between Vienna and Reykjavik

Having long enjoyed a close relationship with Vienna’s Konzerthaus, Florian Boesch gives one of his popular song recitals there on June 6. The programme features songs by Brahms, Liszt and Schumann, interpreted together with his long-time piano partner, Malcolm Martineau. Brahms’ momentous Vier ernste Gesänge and Schumann’s Eichendorff song cycle Op. 39 will be performed in Iceland, where Vikingur Ólafsson has invited Florian Boesch to make his debut at the seventh Reykjavik Midsummer Music Festival. The month ends with the continuation of the tour of Haydn’s Creation together with Il Giardino Armonico under the baton of Giovanni Antonini in Braunschweig and at the Eberbach Monastery as part of the Rheingau Festival – the first part of the tour in May already met with great acclaim.
