Kate Royal & Roger Vignoles 

When: Sun., April 13, 3 p.m. 2008
Price: $42

Even before British soprano Kate Royal released her debut recital on EMI last year, some had proclaimed her one of our three brightest soprano hopes for the future. Her potential has since been confirmed, not only by the beautiful, flowing maturity and heartfelt lyricism of that CD, but also by her subsequent recording of Schumann's Frauenliebe und Leben as part of Graham Johnson's ongoing Schumann series on Hyperion. Although I wish that Royal had widened her repertoire choices to composers other than those featured on her recital CD, the opportunity to hear how her interpretations have evolved in the past year and a half is quite exciting. See her perform at Hertz Hall (Bancroft Wy. at College Ave., UC Berkeley) on Sunday, April 13. 3 p.m., $42. or 510-642-9988.
