Wagner: Wesendonck Lieder (WWV. 91)
Charles Hazlewood is joined by mezzo soprano Jane Irwin and the BBC Concert Orchestra for a workshop session and performance focussing on the five songs which Wagner composed to poems by Mathilde Wesendonck: Wagner's Wesendonck Lieder. Mathilde was Wagner's muse; Wagner was her creative mentor. The intensity of their collaboration is enshrined in these five love songs.
