About

Now here’s a rare event – amazingly, the first song recital disc ever from one of Britain’s best-loved sopranos, Amanda Roocroft, accompanied by the ever-excellent Malcolm Martineau.

Amanda Roocroft has now entered the deserved summer of her career. Winner of the Olivier Award 2007 for her outstanding portrayal of Jenufa at English National Opera, she is now recognised as our leading lyric-dramatic soprano, with ever finer clarity and precision.

Her 2007 London recital drew this from the Financial Times’ Andrew Clark: "If you are lucky, a song recitalist will take you to the edge of an inner world. A select few know how to draw you in further. And then there’s Amanda Roocroft. Her peachy soprano may be what we hear, but it is her heart that does the singing... This recital revealed Roocroft at the peak of her powers – a fully matured artist who combines technical and interpretative control with emotional freedom…. Such sincerity of feeling is only possible from someone who has lived a life. The striking quality about “None but the lonely heart” was the manner in which art concealed art – one of Roocroft’s golden charms. ..A rapturous “Ständchen”… impossible not to be swept along by “Heimliche Aufforderung”, and the ecstatic ardour of “Befreit” was overwhelming. Roocroft understands that the essence of the art song is not its outer beauty of form but its inner depth of feeling. She is a national treasure." (25 May 2007)

Recorded at Champs Hill, England April/July 2007.
