About This Event

The vibrant colours and heady, perfumed atmosphere of ancient Chinese poems are captured in all their richness by Mahler’s thickly-scored Das Lied von der Erde. Two star singers – tenor Stuart Skelton and mezzo Elisabeth Kulman, both regular BBC Symphony Orchestra collaborators – join as soloists. Music director Sakari Oramo will also conduct a pared-back BBCSO in Mozart’s exhilarating Symphony No 35 ‘Haffner’, it’s bubbling, buffa style a contrast to the restless musical introspection of Thomas Larcher’s Nocturne Insomnia – the second of three Larcher performances this season.
