Lieder by Hugo Wolf, Franz Schubert, Arnold Schönberg, Johannes Brahms, Richard Strauss, Anton Webern and Gustav Mahler

This journey in our Abendmusik programme is of a more metaphysical nature, from human despair to transcendent love. This journey is traced in parallel, with baritone and piano taking the more earthly view through Lieder whilst the choral contributions mark the same emotional voyage with biblical texts. At the centre is Brahms’ setting of four passages of scripture which bring sacred and secular together, with the fourth song (the famous description of love from Paul’s letter to the Corinthians) forming the turning point in the programme.

 

This will be a live-streamed concert which can be viewed by purchasing an E-Ticket below.
