Hugh Canning writes in the Sunday Times that Carolyn Sampson's "light bright timbre touches the heart", and Keith Bruce writes that she sings "with luminous perfection and beautiful diction."
Acclaimed pianist Joseph Middleton specialises in the art of song accompaniment and chamber music. Described in Opera Magazine as ‘the rightful heir to legendary accompanist Gerald Moore’ and by BBC Music Magazine as ‘one of the brightest stars in the world of song and Lieder’, he has also been labelled ‘the cream of the new generation’ by The Times.
"Something for everyone here! More languages than I’ve ever attempted in one programme, some songs you’ll know, some you may not. All of them completely wonderful!" Carolyn Sampson on Twitter
