54. Benjamin Appl: Crosscurrents
16 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.
Benjamin Appl explores repertoire inspired by or written in the USA, but by composers who were not themselves American: Korngold, Dvorák, Weill, Schoenberg, and the Anglo-American Rebecca Clarke. The exception is a set of three songs by Samuel Barber that was composed for the great German baritone Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau.
Tonight’s Emerging Artists begin the concert with a performance of Thomas Adès’ Five Eliot Landscapes, five brilliantly inventive and colourful settings of the American poet T.S. Eliot that include views of New Hampshire, Virginia and Cape Ann.
