Hailed as ''one of the brightest lyric-sopranos of the younger generation'', ''a radiant performer'' and ''a born actress'' Louise has been held in high critical acclaim during her early career, and has recently been declared Young Singer of the Year at the 2017 International Opera Awards. She is also no stranger to Lieder, and has worked with pianist Joseph Middleton previously at the Leeds Lieder Festival. Joseph is considered a specialist in the art of song accompaniment, and has been described as ''one of the brightest stars in the world of song and Lieder'' by BBC Music Magazin, ''the cream of the new generation'' by The Times and ''a perfect accompanist'' by Opera Now. Through Life and Love sees Louise and Joseph perform some of the most beautiful Lieder in the repertoire, including Strauss' Die nacht, Standchen and Rote Rosen. Louise will be representing England at the BBC Cardiff Singer of the World Competition this year, and this will be her debut recital recording.
