“Perfect Pitch” – RLPO, Vasily Petrenko – Review

“PERFECT PITCH” BIRKENHEAD SCHOOL 

ROYAL LIVERPOOL PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA, CONUCTOR – VASILY PETRENKO

“The soloist – the young, fast–rising mezzo soprano from Liverpool, Kathryn Rudge – filled the night air with her beautiful, rich, clear voice.

She sang favourite arias such as Softly awakes my heart from Saint-Saens‘ Samson and Delilah, Vilja from Lehar‘s The Merry Widow and songs from the musicals – I dreamed a dream from Les Misérables and Richard Rodgers‘ With a song in my heart. Everyone rose to cheer and sing along to the encore Rule Britannia.

A real last night of the Proms‘ moment to end a wonderful 150th Anniversary Finale. ”
