With Gemma Lois Summerfield (soprano), Jennifer Johnston (mezzo) and James Newby (baritone) singing in music by Mahler and Ruby Hughes (soprano) performing Schumann.
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 Gemma Lois Summerfield and baritone James Newby perform three of Mahler's "Knaben Wunderhorn" settings, mezzo-soprano Jennifer Johnston sings his song-cycle "Kindertotenlieder" and soprano Ruby Hughes sings three songs by Robert Schumann.
