Norfolk & Norwich Chamber Music presents André Schuen : Lieder on Thursday 21 November

NNChamber headerAndré Schuen
Thursday 21st November 2019, 7:30pm at the John Innes Conference Centre
Pre-concert talk by Richard Wigmore at 6.15pm

For fans of the Lieder repertoire, we have a real treat at our second November concert. Andrè Schuen has given song recitals at the Wigmore Hall, the Oxford Lieder Festival and the Vienna Concert House, and has also performed on the opera stage worldwide. In 2016 he received the Young Artist of the Year award from ECHO Klassic in Germany (equivalent to the Gramophone awards). Andrè is joined by Daniel Heide for a recital of Mahler and Schubert songs.

Programme:

Mahler: Wenn mein Schatz Hochzeit macht; Ging heut morgen übers Feld; Ich hab’ ein glühend Messer; Die zwei blauen Augen
Schubert: An den Mond (D.259); Im Frühling; Der Schiffer (D.536);
Abendstern; Des Fischers Liebesglück; Der Musensohn; Sei mir gegrüßt;
Du bist die Ruh; Dass sie hier gewesen
Mahler: Liebst du um Schönheit; Blicke mir nicht in die Lieder!;
Ich atmet‘ einen linden Duft; Um Mitternacht; Ich bin der Welt
abhanden gekommen

Andrè Schuen, one of today’s outstanding young baritones, took leading roles in all three of the Mozart/Da Ponte operas under Nikolaus Harnoncourt, and gave highly successful performances of Schubert’s Die schöne Müllerin and Schwanengesang at the prestigious Schubertiade in Schwartzenberg. In this programme, Schubert and Mahler meet their common ground in settings of the poet Friedrich Rückert.
