A great credit is due to Beethoven both for the form and the content of the romantic art song, the lied.In “Mailied”, (May song), to lyrics by Goethe, spring and sensual love merges in a higher synthesis – and thus the main theme is struck for many of the classics of the repertory.In “Abendlied unterm gestirnten Himmel”, (Evening song under a starry sky), reflection is elevated to the main theme. And not only reflection, but also a profound yearning for the soul’s eternal home among the stars.In “An die ferne Geliebte”, (For the loved one far away), we hear drifting clouds, mountain lakes, purling fountains and warbling birds while the lover sings his songs for his far-away and unattainable beloved.Schumann’s nine songs to poems by Heinrich Heine have a refined layer of irony, but also concern themselves with love.In Winter Words Britten treats time in an impressionistic and emotional tonal idiom.Mark Padmore and Julius DrakeOrignally Mark Padmore dreamed of a life as a clarinet player, but the choir a Kings’ College, Cambridge, made him change his mind. Baroque music was close to his heart, and his world fame has been achieved in no small measure by way of the tenor parts in Bach’s oratories and passions at the most prominent venues.Padmore is in the world elite of lyrical tenors, and this evening we will hear him accompanied by Julius Drake, who visits us for the third time.Programme:Ludwig van Beethoven (1770–1827): Four liederRobert Schumann (1810–1856): Liederkreis op. 24.
