The Hallé - Mahler's Fourth Symphony on Sunday 12th November 2017
Mozart - Aria for soprano, piano and orchestra: Ch'io mi scordi di te
Mozart - Symphony No.34
Mahler - Symphony No.4
Joanne Lunn, soprano*
Soprano Joanne Lunn joins the versatile Ryan Wigglesworth in Mozart’s aria for soprano, piano and orchestra ‘Ch’io mi scordi di te’ (‘Should I forget you’). The two soloists interact exquisitely in one of the greatest declarations of love in all music. Mozart’s C major Symphony was also influenced by opera and exudes both tenderness and impish humour. Elizabeth returns in the second half of the concert as soloist in Mahler’s magnificent Fourth Symphony. The first movement recalls Mozart’s classical style, the second evokes the grim fiddler of German folklore and the third is a sublime slow movement. Finally comes a setting of poetry depicting a child’s vision of paradise, with sweets in profusion and bread baked by angels.
*The Hallé Concerts Society is grateful to Joanne Lunn for replacing Elizabeth Watts, who has had to withdraw.
