WALTRAUD MEIER & SAMUEL HASSELHORN

concert

Song and aria recital in two parts, with Hungarian and English surtitles

This format was made necessary by life. By size, the Ybl Palace is one of the medium-sized opera houses, but in terms of beauty it is first class, which we further enhance by lighting it gorgeously. On its podium, or the top of its orchestra pit, the soloist can stand almost fully surrounded by the audience, and accompanied by our brand-new Steinway – and of course an instrumentalist partner – she can give a most memorable recital featuring her favourite opuses for voice as well as her sensitively interpreted opera arias in the second part after the interval.
Legendary dramatic soprano Waltraud Meier and her compatriot up-and-coming baritone Samuel Hasselhorn step on the stage of Ybl Palace to perform a special selection of German Lieder, including the works of Mahler – who also served as musical director here – which can be sung as a dialogue too.

Featuring Waltraud Meier (soprano), Samuel Hasselhorn (baritone), and Joseph Breinl (piano)
