A Poet’s Journey

Programme to include:

Britten Who are these children?
Mahler Rückert-Lieder
Schumann Dichterliebe (historically correct version including 4 extra songs)

‘When words leave off, music begins’: so wrote the nineteenth century German poet Heinrich Heine. No composer set Heine as magically as Schumann and the Leeds audience has a rare chance to hear a complete performance of Robert Schumann’s Dichterliebe, the original twenty Heine songs, rather than the sixteen usually given. Well-known and well-loved by audiences around the globe, Mark Padmore returns to Leeds following an extraordinary season. Artist in Residence with the Berlin Philharmonic and Bayerische Rundfunk Orchestras, he was awarded a CBE this year and performs at all the major music centres. His recital also includes Britten’s rarely performed Scots songs, Who are these children? and Mahler’s transcendental Rückert-Lieder.
