Recital: Matthew Rose (bass) & Joseph Middleton (piano)

by Becky Coombs

On Thursday 29 October at 8pm in The Old Library, Pembroke College Cambridge Matthew Rose (bass) will be joined by pianist Joseph Middleton for a recital of Epic drama and thrilling narratives run through this programme which centres around the ballads of Schubert, Schumann and Loewe. We are delighted to welcome back to Pembroke College internationally acclaimed bass Matthew Rose. His last appearance in Pembroke with Joseph Middleton also featured Schubert and was reviewed in The Spectator as ‘the most impressive account I have heard of that difficult non-cycle [Schwanengesang]’. Now regarded as one of the finest bass voices of our time, Matthew Rose is a regular fixture at the Metropolitan Opera House New York, Royal Opera House Covent Garden, La Scala Milan, and the BBC Proms. Tonight he is once again joined by Pembroke’s College Musician, Joseph Middleton, recently described in BBC Music Magazine as ‘one of the brightest stars in the world of song and Lieder.’
