Songs by Schubert and Wolf
Winner of 2016’s International Lieder Competition in Stuttgart, Ilker Arcayürek has been compared to Ian Bostridge, Christoph Pregardien and Nicolai Gedda for his vocal richness and clarity.
Born in Istanbul and raised in Vienna, he’s won enormous international praise for his golden tenor voice, his astonishing vocal freshness, and his disarming mix of power and vulnerability.
For his International Festival debut recital, Arcayürek is joined by regular piano partner Simon Lepper, himself renowned for his powerful, sensitive pianism, in a rich, dramatic collection of songs by Wolf and Schubert.
Together, they take in works including the miniature dramas of Wolf’s passionate Peregrina and compelling Der Feuerreiter, alongside Schubert’s poignant Gesänge des Harfners and melancholy Schäfers Klagelied.
