At the end of August, Diana Damrau will be back on the road with her frequent collaborator, harpist Xavier de Maistre, with a new program of Lieder by Franz Schubert, Gioachino Rossini, Gabriel Fauré and Claude Debussy. They will perform at the Salzburger Festspiele and the Schubertiade, as well as the Theater Gütersloh and London’s Wigmore Hall.

“[...]Damrau’s vocal delicacy, [is] able to open a phrase with a delicate crescendo, while often ending them with soft holds as if she were embracing the syllables to the fullest.”
