Concertzender Live

Compiled by our Classical Music desk.

More than just Schubert and Schumann.

Today’s show’s two concerts are recorded almost thirty years apart, but they have a lot in common. They are both song recitals that carefully and successfully deviate from the norm. It’s not just Schubert and Schumann who do this, Carl Loewe the king of Ballads in the Biedermeier era, for example, does it too. We also have songs by Gustav Mahler, who sounds like Hugo Wolf when performing with a piano instead of an orchestra. You’ll also hear Alma Mahler and Alexander Zemlinsky and Debussy, Bernstein and Vaughan Williams because the song isn’t just a German art. In total, you’ll listen to no less than forty songs!

In the first concert, you’ll listen to mezzo-soprano Sylvia Schlüter, tenor Hein Meens and bass Nigel Cliffe and Kelvin Grout on piano. Mezzo-soprano Sara Connolly sings in the second concert and is accompanied by Julius Drake.
