Golda Schultz & Jonathan Ware
  • Edinburgh International Festival

Soprano Golda Schultz and regular pianist partner Jonathan Ware perform This be her verse, a revelatory collection of songs by often-overlooked women composers.

South African soprano Golda Schultz has quickly established her place among the worlds most respected and celebrated singers, with an extraordinary warmth to her glowing voice, and a rare emotional power to her performances. With performances at the Met, the Salzburg Festival and the Bavarian State Opera, as well as on concert stages across the world, shes one of todays most versatile singers and in increasing demand internationally.

Together with her regular pianist partner Jonathan Ware, Schultz has devised This be her verse, a revelatory collection of songs exploring the often-overlooked musical worlds and inspirations of women composers from Germany, France, England and South Africa, from the height of the Romantic era to the present day. Exploring themes of love, nature, folklore and belief " all from a distinctively female perspective " This be her verse concludes with a brand new three-song cycle by Schultzs compatriot Kathleen Tagg, which gives the recital its title.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.
