A Rosenkavalier Extravaganza
  • Edinburgh Fringe

A rare chance to hear some of the loveliest Romantic music ever written, in the glorious acoustic of St Andrews and St George's West Church in the heart of Edinburgh's Georgian New Town. Internationally renowned Scottish bass singer Brian Bannatyne-Scott presents a programme of highlights from Richard Strauss's magnificent opera Der Rosenkavalier with wonderful young singers Caroline Taylor, Catherine Backhouse and Catherine Hooper, accompanied by the legendary Scottish pianist Walter Blair. Interspersed with luscious Lieder by Strauss, the performers will sing extracts from the opera that established Strauss as the foremost composer of his day.
