Out now! Beethoven • Wagner • Verdi

Out now! Beethoven • Wagner • Verdi

Lise’s eagerly awaited second album on Decca Classics is out now.

Recorded with London Philharmonic Orchestra and Sir Mark Elder in summer 2020 during lockdown, the disc features Leonore’s aria from Fidelio, which she sung at the Royal Opera House in March last year and mesmerized critics and audience members alike. Wagner’s five Wesendonck Lieder also features, a work that has become a signature piece for Lise.  

Lise’s media round up this week includes an interview on BBC Radio 3’s In Tune and gracing the cover of Gramophone’s April edition, where she spoke to Neil Fisher about practising in lockdown, tackling ‘forbidden’ roles on record, and her desire to be back on stage.

This week Lise also performed twice on stage in front of a small live audience in Trondheim – a recital with Leif Ove Andsnes and in concert with the Trondheim Symphony Orchestra that was also streamed. This was the first time in five months that Lise had sang for an audience: “I can’t express how much I missed it!”
