Cancelled: Elīna Garanča mezzo-soprano; Malcolm Martineau piano
Schumann, Wagner and Mahler
We are extremely sorry to announce that Elīna Garanča (mezzo-soprano) is unable to perform in the above concert due to a medical intervention which couldn’t be delayed any further. She is looking forward to finding a replacement date in the not too distant future.
- Elīna Garanča mezzo-soprano
- Malcolm Martineau piano
Elīna Garanča invests everything she performs with elements of her personality and experience of life. The Latvian mezzo-soprano recently reflected on her approach to making music in an acclaimed autobiography, in which she credited wearing the right shoes as key to freeing her soul and allowing her voice to soar in performance.
She joins Malcolm Martineau in a programme shot through with big emotions and expressive contrasts, moving from the songs of Myrthen, Schumann’s wedding gift to his wife, Clara, to Mahler’s transcendent Rückert Lieder by way of Wagner’s Wesendonck Lieder, written while the composer was at work on his opera Tristan und Isolde.
