Britten Sinfonia: Elder conducts Mahler and Brahms
Saturday 19 January 2019, 7.30pm
Classical Music | Concerts
Sir Mark Elder conductor
Anna Stéphany mezzo-ssoprano
Britten Suite on English Folk Tunes
Mahler Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen
Brahms Symphony No. 2
Sir Mark Elder conducts Brahms’s radiant and bucolic 2nd symphony, in the second year of an acclaimed four-year symphony cycle. The cycle borrows from the spirit of early performances of the works, by performing them with the musical forces that Brahms intended. The concert also traces a poetic line from Brahms’s symphonic Romanticism to more intimate evocations of poetry, love and nature in Mahler’s emotionally charged Songs for a Wayfarer, and Britten’s Suite on English Folk Tunes.
"In Elder's hands and with Britten Sinfonia's relentlessly incisive tone, Brahms' much celebrated First Symphony sounded astonishingly fresh" BachTrack
The playing, with every solo line beautifully teased out and an instinctive sense of ensemble give and take, was exemplary throughout the evening." The Guardian.
