Time: 19:30

Elisabeth Kulman mezzo-soprano

Stuart Skelton tenor

Sakari Oramo conductor

PART OF BBC Symphony Orchestra & Chorus 2018-19 Season BBC SO Shostakovich 2018/19

The vibrant colours and heady, perfumed atmosphere of ancient Chinese poems are captured in all their richness by Mahler's thickly-scored Das Lied von der Erde. Two star singers - tenor Stuart Skelton and mezzo Elisabeth Kulman, both regular BBC Symphony Orchestra collaborators - join as soloists. Music director Sakari Oramo will also conduct a pared-back BBCSO in Mozart's exhilarating Symphony No 35 'Haffner', it's bubbling, buffa style a contrast to the restless musical introspection of Thomas Larcher's Nocturne Insomnia - the second of three Larcher performances this season.
