Concert: Bach’s Christmas Oratorio and a recital with Sophie Rennert

In December, while continuing to perform Angelina’s role in “La Cenerentola” at the Nationaltheater Mannheim, Sophie Rennert also sings the alto parts in Bach’s Christmas Oratorio BWV 248, backed by the L’Orfeo Baroque Orchestra and the Chorus sine nomine under Johannes Hiemetsberger – twice at the Musikverein Graz, followed by a performance at the Musikverein Wien and one at the Brucknerhaus Linz.

Just in time for Christmas, she also visits Leeds again, where pianist Joseph Middleton and the Austrian mezzo offer a recital with a Christmas-oriented programme as part of the “Leeds Lieder” festival.
