Baritone Julien Van Mellaerts and pianist Dylan Perez, co-curators of the Opera in Song recital series, talk to Anna Picard about this year’s programmes, the versatility of art songs, and how it feels to work with the Opera Holland Park Young Artists.
'Singing a recital is not just about standing in front of a piano and performing a short song. Each song has a story or an emotion that needs to be conveyed to the audience in much the same way as in opera. The difference is that we are more exposed'
'We have experienced so much enjoyment and support from all the staff, performers and creatives at OHP – this is an opportunity to contribute directly to the continued development of OHP and its ethos. And it’s fun!'
