Dietrich Henschel and Steven Osborne, Queen’s Hall, Edinburgh, Star rating: * * * * *

LOST love, crumbling faith and existential despair: German baritone Dietrich Henschel’s EIF recital was a pretty dark affair.
But it was riveting from start to finish, his compelling and often highly theatrical interpretations partnered superbly by the subtle yet commanding playing of Edinburgh-born pianist Steven Osborne.Full review in The Scotsman.

Dietrich Henschel + Steven Osborne - Mon 27 August 2012 -0124

“His prowess as an interpreter, by which I mean precisely his ability to get below the surface of a song and right into its soul, is extraordinary. And his ability to characterise a song through sheer acting as much as singing resulted yesterday, at his Queen’s Hall concert with pianist Steven Osborne, in a recital of consummate intelligence, fuelled by a voice where beauty of sound is almost a secondary consideration to penetrating and revealing the nuances and implications of a text.” Full 5 star review at
