Ema Nikolovska mezzo-soprano
Malcolm Martineau piano
A household name across Europe during the late 19th century, Pauline Viardot was an international opera star by 18, studied the piano with Liszt, played duets with Chopin, charmed Saint-Saëns, Berlioz, Gounod and the writer Turgenev, and hosted the greatest musical salon of her day. She was also a fine composer, though one still heard too rarely today.
BBC New Generation Artist Ema Nikolovska and pianist Malcolm Martineau invite you to step into Viardot’s drawing room for a lunchtime recital of music by Viardot, her friends and her contemporaries – including Gounod, Brahms, Tchaikovsky and Chopin.
