Irish baritone Benjamin Russell was member of the ensemble of the Hessisches Staatstheater Wiesbaden, Germany for over 10 years and now works busily as a freelance artist. Winner of the Richard Tauber Prize for the best interpretation of Schubert Lieder at the Wigmore Hall Song Competition 2019, Benjamin has been praised for his “powerful baritone voice” (Bachtrack) and “outstanding diction” (Opera Magazine). Benjamin performs a programme of Beethoven and Schubert lieder, selections from Aaron Copland’s Old American Songs and George Butterworth’s beloved and touching song-cycle, A Shropshire Lad. He is accompanied by Irish pianist Niall Kinsella, who has been described as “a first class calling-card as a knowledgeable and profound song accompanist” (Merker, Austria) and “a meticulous collaborator” (BBC Music Magazine).
