17. Songs and Moods
10 October 2021, 20:15 - 21:30
Enjoy the whole festival live online for £165 with a Digital Festival Pass. All events will be available on demand after broadcast until 30th November, so you can catch up at a time which suits you.
PLEASE NOTE: Roderick Williams has regretfully had to withdraw from this concert. We are delighted that the acclaimed Swedish baritone Jakob Högström will take his place. The programme remains unchanged.
Stenhammar wrote many songs, but only one substantial song cycle: Visor och Stämningar (‘Songs and Moods’). Setting texts by five poets – with three poems of Bo Bergman at its heart – it shows an astonishing range and depth, with echoes of Schumann's Eichendorff Liederkreis. Tonight, Jakob Högström gives a rare complete performance of this cycle. The world-renowned soprano Camilla Tilling, who gave a stunning performance with BBC NOW on the opening night of the 2019 Festival, makes a welcome return to perform other Stenhammar songs. She concludes the programme with ‘I Skogen’ (‘In the woods’), a perfectly-formed gem written when the composer was still a teenager.
Our Emerging Artist this evening is the Swedish soprano Agnes Auer, who performs songs by Rangström, Alfvén and Peterson-Berger, all important Swedish song composers.
