Kathryn performed with pianist James Baillieu in a lunchtime recital at Wigmore Hall which was broadcast live on BBC Radio 3 on 14th and repeated on 19th February 2017.
The English song programme included repertoire by Howells, Quilter, Gurney and Browne. Kathryn and James were also joined by viola player Gary Pomeroy for three songs by Frank Bridge.
“Kathryn… demonstrated her ability to capture both the hope and the resignation that so many of these songs display. Always sincere and direct …. Rudge exhibited a firm mezzo-soprano which is well-centred, secure and consistent across the register: rich at the bottom and glossy the top” Opera Today, Claire Seymour.
