Information about the programme

Simon Rattle and Magdalena Kožená will give a quite unusual chamber recital together with friends from London and Berlin – especially for BRSO subscribers. In some of the songs Sir Simon will play the piano, but others are accompanied by a string quartet or wind ensemble, adding choice colours to Magdalena Kožená’s mezzo. Owing to the unusual instrumentation, the chosen works are rarely heard in the concert hall and display a vivid panorama of European art song. A rare highlight!
