Songs about Songs

Fri 20/09/2019 19:00 - 21:00
Tickets: 46.00-9.50 €


Composer Luciano Berio created unconventional instrumentals from folk songs he found on old recordings, in sheet music collections, and from folk musicians and friends. Mezzo-soprano Nora Gubisch colours the songs in earthy tones. The concert ends with great contrasts and emotional extremes with Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 5, which the composer alternately loved and hated.
