Pitch-perfect vocalist an absolute joy

Camilla Tilling and Paul Rivinius, St George’s Church

A robust but stylish piano accompaniment to the opening Schubert song set the pace for Swedish singer Camilla Tilling’s recital with German pianist Paul Rivinius in St George’s, High Street.

Each register of Tilling’s vocal range had colour and character.

In Schumann’s Liederkreis Op. 39, Rivinius projected a luminous sound, complementing the rich tones of Tilling’s vocal dramatisations.

Berg’s Seven Early songs also showed great refinement, but it was in the songs of Grieg that Tilling seemed to radiate a particular warmth. The last one in the group deservedly brought the audience to their feet.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

A close relationship could reach a rocky patch. Resist the urge to emotionally withdraw from your loved one. Be willing to address the issues that have been pulling you apart. You could hear some painful things about your behaviour. Instead of getting defensive, be open to changing for the sake of your relationship. Think back to a time when someone you loved worked hard to gain your affection and approval. Pattern your attitude after theirs. Being flexible is more important than being right.More
