So back to the Salle Bourgie for the second and final batch of art song contestants. First up was mezzo Hagar Sharvit. I liked her. It’s a genuine mezzo voice and if her Fauré and Schubert offerings were a bit “flow of beautiful tone” they displayed plenty of power and a nice ability to spin a line. Her version of Britten’s O Waly, Waly was rather good ; more dramatic and with perfect diction. A strong start.
