Luminous German soprano Dorothea Röschmann, world renowned as a Bach and mozart specialist and lieder recitalist, has rarely performed in the US, and only once previously in Washington: a Vocal Arts DC appearance in 2006. Winner of two Grammy Awards-most recently in 2017 for an album of Schumann and Berg songs on the Decca label-she received the prestigious title of "Kammersängerin" from Berlin's Deutsche Staatsoper in 2016.

Program to include Wagner's Wesendonck Lieder and Mahler's Rükert Lieder.

"Ms. Röschmann's seriousness is only a veil attractively covering and accentuating an underlying sensuality. Her silvery soprano, clear and ethereally pretty on top, has a startling quality of voluptuousness, going down to rich, warm, earthy low notes that sometimes erupted from a vocal line with disproportionate (you might say unladylike) power."

ANNE MIDGETTE, The New York Times
