About

Heinz Holliger is perhaps best known as oboist and conductor but has a sizeable oeuvre including many song cycles, while Wolfgang Rihm is one of today’s highest achievers in the art of lieder composition. Finnissy’s work, on texts by Goethe, is an example of his vital contribution to the realm of modern vocal music.

Clare Lesser is a specialist in new vocal music and ‘is blessed with a gorgeous voice and terrific technique’ (Musical Pointers). Her previous releases have garnered great praise for her ability to cope with advanced technical requirements as well as being able to sing ‘straight’ with a most beautiful mellifluous tone and (thankfully) perfectly controlled vibrato.

Husband David accompanies and also provides a major work on this programme of lieder by some of our age’s most inspired composers.

Both Lessers teach at New York University in Abu Dhabi as well as performing, recording and doing much research.
