About Edinburgh International Festival: Michael Volle & Helmut Deutsch

Listed Under Music Events

Schubert Der Taucher
Mahler Selection from Des Knaben Wunderhorn
Strauss Three Lieder from Op 87
Mahler Selection from Rückert-Lieder

Powerhouse German baritone Michael Volle is a star of the international opera stage, and one of today’s most exciting interpreters of Wagner, Strauss, Verdi and more. With a voice of huge strength and kaleidoscopic colour, he’s also a masterful recitalist – and performs a gloriously dramatic, romantic programme for his return to the International Festival.

Joined by regular recital partner Helmut Deutsch, a respected piano soloist in his own right, Volle explores the one-man mini-opera of medieval romance and valiant chivalry in Schubert’s gripping cliffhanger Der Taucher, alongside the blistering heroism and bawdy humour of a selection from Mahler’s Wunderhorn songs.

He closes with three opulent Lieder by Richard Strauss, and the ravishing, lyrical beauty of Mahler’s intimate Rückert-Lieder.

This concert will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 3.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Edinburgh International Festival: Michael Volle & Helmut Deutsch are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
