Spotlight on Carolyn Sampson

Posted on: April 1, 2011 in: Spotlight on...

 We’re really excited to be joined by talented UK soprano Carolyn Sampson for our concert next Thursday at Cadogan Hall. 

Carolyn’s career straddles both the classical and operatic worlds and she has already performed at some of the most prestigious venues in the UK and around the world, including Glyndebourne, the London Coliseum, the Amsterdam Concertgebouw and Carnegie Hall, New York. 

She has performed alongside some of the most renowned orchestras and ensembles including the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, The English Concert, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic and City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestras.


We’re delighted that she is joining us to perform American composer Samuel Barber’s serene and luscious rhapsody for voice and orchestra, Knoxville: Summer of 1915. First performed in 1948, the piece is a nostalgic remembrance of a childhood past, written against the backdrop of a world torn apart by war and suffering. 

Have a listen to our 7 April Concert Playlist to hear all the pieces that will be performed on the night.
