Ramón Vargas is one of those rare tenors who places great importance on that most intimate and lyrical of musical genres: the art song.
Although he gives concerts from time to time, he is yet to perform a song recital at the Erkel Theatre, even though the venue's spirit – going back as far as Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, in spite of the vast space – aids the muse of poetry.
In March, Vargas will join the likes of Andrea Rost, Gyula Orendt, Edita Gruberová and Renée Fleming on the list of artists to give a song recitals at the theatre in the “modern-era”, featuring the music of star piano accompanist Charles Spencer, just as Fleming's concert included that of Hartmut Höll.
Venue: Erkel Theatre
Address: 1087 Budapest, II. János Pál pápa tér 30.
