PORTICO OF ARDS (FESTIV’ ARDS) RECITAL, PORTAFERRY, N. IRELAND

00
    Kathryn and James Baillieu perform a recital at the Festiv’Ards in Portaferry, Northern Ireland.
    “Mezzo soprano Kathryn Rudge is the darling of classical music for good reason. “It doesn’t take long (five notes maybe) to hear why people are so excited. Her mezzo-soprano voice already has tremendous reserves of power, impeccable intonation, the capacity for a gloriously sustained legato and, most interesting of all, a distinctive vocal quality. The timbre has white-hot intensity that extends undiminished through all of two octaves.” The Times
