Baritone Michael Volle and pianist Helmut Deutsch

German singer Michael Volle presents Mahler's poignant Ruckert songs, Strauss and Schubert with Helmut Deutsch, live from the Queen's Hall in Edinburgh.

German baritone Michael Volle presents a programme of high drama and poignancy accompanied by Helmut Deutsch, on piano. Schubert's setting of 'Der Taucher' (The Diver) tells the tragic tale of King's challenge to retrieve a gold goblet from the water to win his daughter's hand in marriage. This is followed by three songs from Mahler's song collection 'Des Knaben Wunderhorn'. After the interval Micheal Volle and Helmut Deutsch perform three rarely heard songs by Strauss and they conclude with Mahler's poignant Rückert-Lieder. Presented by Donald Macleod
