One of Europe’s fastest-rising song recitalists explores songs from many traditions exploring the theme of Heimat, a hard-to-translate German word meaning homeland but also encompassing the idea of ‘belonging’, ‘roots’ or, as Henry Bishop’s famous melody has it, ‘Home, sweet home’.

‘the young German baritone Benjamin Appl is lieder royalty.’ – The Spectator

‘Appl is not only a singer of boundless promise, he is already a great artist … since he has an extraordinarily beautiful voice, there should be decades of happiness as he continues to expand his repertoire.’ – BBC Music Magazine
