She is one of the most sought-after French mezzos, and he is one of the most prominent conductors of the day. And yet, despite their busy schedules, they now and then make time to return to their musical first love: the lied. Nora Gubisch and Alain Altinoglu open the recital series with a programme that brings together the full-blooded romanticism of Johannes Brahms and Richard Strauss – a key figure in our symphonic concerts – with the lyrical fuego of Enrique Granados and Manuel de Falla. Altogether, an hour and a half of vocal fireworks, courtesy of a musical power couple.
Robert Schumann, Johannes Brahms, Richard Strauss, Ricardo Viñes, Enrique Granados, Manuel de Falla
