Wagner: Wesendonck Lieder

Charles Hazlewood is joined by mezzo soprano, Jane Irwin and the BBC Concert Orchestra for a workshop session focussing on the five songs which Wagner composed to poems by Mathilde Wesendonck: Wagner's Wesendonck Lieder (WWV. 91).

Mathilde was Wagner's muse; Wagner was her creative mentor. The intensity of their collaboration is enshrined in these five love songs.
