From the 2016-17 Leeds Lieder season, Ruby Hughes (soprano) and James Newby (baritone) perform music by Mahler. Plus Jennifer Johnston (mezzo-soprano) in Wagner's Wesendonck-Lieder.
This week's Lunchtime Concerts were recorded at the Clothworkers Centenary Concert Hall as part of the 2016/17 Leeds Lieder Festival, curated by pianist Joseph Middleton. Joseph's theme for this festival was the music of Gustav Mahler, which he paired with songs by some of Mahler's inspirations and contemporaries. Today, soprano Ruby Hughes performs some of Mahler's early songs, baritone James Newby sings three of the Knaben Wunderhorn settings, and mezzo-soprano Jennifer Johnston performs Wagner's "Wesendonck Lieder".
