About B:Classical 2022/23 & ECHO Rising Stars: James Newby

James Newby: Baritone

Joseph Middleton: Piano

Schubert Die schöne Müllerin

There’s a real buzz around James Newby. Already a significant voice in Lied singing, he’s a BBC New Generation Artist, regular recitalist at Wigmore Hall and Oxford Lieder Festivals and a member of Staatsoper Hannover. Among armfuls of prizes are the prestigious Kathleen Ferrier Award and Richard Tauber Prize for best interpretation of Schubert Lied. In a sublime match of music and verse, Schubert weaves his magic over the 20 songs in the cycle about the young, and ultimately tragic, love of the miller’s apprentice for the Fair Maid of the Mill.

In our Sunday morning Rising Stars recitals, we’ll hear from a group of outstanding artists, hand-picked by the directors of Europe’s most prestigious concert halls. Each musician embarks on an international concert tour of halls in the ECHO (European Concert Hall Organisation) network and B:Music venues Symphony Hall and Town Hall have been there since the series began in 1995.

Join us in Symphony Hall’s new Jennifer Blackwell Performance Space for a delightful hour or so in the company of superb musicians, and enjoy a coffee or tea and a slice of cake into the bargain.

ECHO artist nominated by the Barbican, London
