Soprano Ruby Hughes launches her new disk, ECHO at the Wigmore Hall on 18th December. The disk, released on BIS records on 4th November was recorded with pianist Huw Watkins, who is also the composer of the title tracks.
Since the disk's release, it has received glowing reviews, including being featured on Apple Music's Classical A-List playlist. See what the critics have said:
"Hughes’s pure tone and sensitivity shine out, her voice at times almost ethereal."
Fiona Maddocks, The Guardian
"a typically striking recital from the soprano Ruby Hughes ... Hughes’s vibrato-light voice is extremely expressive even when her volume’s turned low"
Geoff Brown, The Times
"The cycle as a whole is deeply personal obviously because of the chosen text but even more so due to Hughes’ storytelling capabilities: she possesses the rare ability to make listeners feel like they are the only ones in the room."
Azusa Ueno, The Classic Review
The duo will perform at the Wigmore Hall at 15:00 on Sunday 18th December, and you can listen here to Ruby's Inside Music interview for BBC Radio 3.
