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.

Keswick Hall Choir presents Americana 2 Saturday 30 November 2019

Americana-2-Poster

Saturday 30 November 2019

Americana 2: Exploring North American choral music

Aaron Copland In the beginning
Dan Forrest Good night, dear heart
Randall Thompson Alleluia
Ernst Toch Geographical fugue
David del Tredici Acrostic song
Eric Whitacre When David heard

Plus folksong and spiritual arrangements by James Erb, Robert Fountain and John Rutter

A programme exploring some jewels of 20th-century American choral music. Copland’s choral fantasia joyfully expounds the Genesis story of creation, while Whitacre’s deeply felt setting of a line from the Second Book of Samuel really plucks at the heartstrings. The programme will include both a speaking chorus (Toch) and a whispering chorus (del Tredici) as well as Randall Thompson’s classic setting of just one word.

Director: Chris Duarte

Venue: Church of St Peter Mancroft, Norwich
Time: 7.30 pm

Tickets £12/£7/£2, and can be bought:

  • From St. George’s Music Shop, 17-19 St George’s Street, tel. (01603) 626414;
  • Online via ticketsource;
