Gustav Mahler Des Knaben Wunderhorn

In association with the Kathleen Ferrier Awards

The Kathleen Ferrier Awards have become a benchmark for identifying new talent with an impressive roster of past winners: Bryn Terfel, Joan Rodgers, Elizabeth Watts and Kate Royal all take their place in this roll-call. Now two new names appear on this list and we are delighted to welcome them to Leeds. Both already enthusiastic recitalists, Gemma and James join Leeds Lieder Director Joseph Middleton to round off our Mahler series with a complete performance of Des Knaben Wunderhorn, a collection of German folk poems and songs that tackle tales of soldiers, spirits and lovers.

This recital will be preceded by a pre-concert talk, by David Hoult beginning at 6.30pm in Lecture Theatre 1.

Mahler: Des Knaben Wunderhorn

Der Tamboursg’sell
Der Schildwache Nachtlied
Wer hat dies Liedlein erdacht?!
Verlorne Müh’!
Lied des Verfolgten im Turm
Lob des hohen Verstands


Trost im Unglück
Des Antonius von Padua Fischpredigt
“Es sungen drei Engel einen süßen Gesang”
Wo die schönen Trompeten blasen
Das irdische Leben
Das himmlische Leben

The concert will also be recorded by BBC Radio 3 for broadcast at a later date.
