Simon Keenlyside

Par la force de l’amour, nous
Nous dégageons de nos liens,
Et les esprits enivrés s’envolent
Jusqu’aux étoiles, libres et grands !

Excerpt from “Hymn to Love” Friedrich Hölderlin (1770-1843)

Richard Strauss, Franz Schubert

Simon Keenlyside’s distinguished timbre and profound musicality make each of his recitals an opportunity for a privileged intellectual encounter with the composer. The English star offers us a German programme, featuring the two poles of Romanticism which are Richard Strauss and Franz Schubert. The noble character of his baritone and his sense of heroic apostrophe will be invaluable for Strauss’ Hymns and their daring rhetorical questions. As for the Schubertian part of the evening, Simon Keenlyside’s keen sensitivity to the text and the light freshness of his approach are the best servants of the expressiveness and brilliance of Auf der Donau or Im Walde.
