Versatile: Sophie Rennert with Mozart in England and as a Lied singer in Austria – from June 2nd (2)

SophieRennertpiaclodi 022 150x150Ever since 2015, Ian Page and his Classical Opera have devoted themselves to their “Mozart 250” programme, honouring those of Mozart’s that were written exactly 250 years before. As part of this effort, Sophie Rennert sings Giacinta in “La Finta Semplice”, first on June 2nd in Birmingham and then on June 6th and 8th at the newly renovated Queen Elizabeth Hall in London. Ian Page will be at the rostrum of these concertante (Birmingham) and semi-staged (London) performances; Regula Mühlemann and Chiara Skerath as Rosina and Ninetta, respectively, will be joining Sophie Rennert on stage.
In June, the young mezzo-soprano will also perform in recitals at the Styrian Musikverein in her hometown Graz (June 13th), in Vienna (June 14th) and at the Stift Kremsmünster (June 16th). The ensemble – Emmanuel Tjeknavorian, violin; Ziyu He, violin, viola; Gerhard Schulz, viola; Dominik Wagner, double bass; and Elisabeth Leonskaja, piano – and Sophie Rennert’s beautiful soprano promise evenings full of delight.
