Recital 1991Edinburgh International Festival

Read more about the opera Recital

Perhaps the link to opera or operetta is slightly tenuous - right at the end, two classic Offenbach items followed by two of Oscar Straus.  The afternoon began with eleven Strauss songs, and the party pieces after the interval included groups of three by Poulenc and Hahn.  This was a blissful way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

The programme was:

Strauss Zueignung

Der Stern




Drei Lieder der Ophelia:

Wie erkenn ich mein Treulieb

Guten Morgen's ist Sankt Valentinstag

Sie trugen ihn auf Bahre bloss

Ich schwebe

Freundliche Vision



Poulenc Voyage à Paris


A sa guitare

Hahn Rêverie

Si mes vers avaient des ailes

Le Printemps

Offenbach Dites-lui La Grande-Duchesse de Gérolstein

Tu n'est pas beau La Périchole

O Straus Je ne suis pas ce que l'on pense

C'est la saison d'amou Les trois Valses
