Hélène Lindqvist tells AfriClassical she will post more songs of Samuel Coleridge-Taylor shortly.

“Philipp Vogler – pianist, conductor, composer and professor at the University of Music in Munich Germany, and Hélène Lindqvist – the most famous Swedish-Egyptian soprano of our times. Together as Lindqvist & Vogler we have been an art song duo for over ten years. We aim for a 'live' feeling to our recordings; using uncut, single-take material only.”
