Lise joins the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra on 8 February to perform Strauss Opus 27 songs under the baton of Vasily Petrenko. The four songs of Op.27 were originally scored for voice and piano and set words from poems by Heinrich Hart, Karl Henckell and John Henry Mackay. Lise returns to the works of Strauss later this season when she reunites with Petrenko and the Oslo Philharmonic to sing the composer’s famous Four Last Songs in March. She also makes her debut at Festival d’Aix-en-Provence in their new production of Ariadne auf Naxos.
Elsewhere this month, Lise continues her artistic residency with the Bergen Philharmonic when she returns with pianist James Baillieu for an operatic recital at Bergen’s University Aula on 7 February. She also joins the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra to sing in Beethoven Symphony No.9 on 22 and 24 February.
