Elder conducts Brahms

Elisabeth Kulman, mezzo-soprano
Britten Sinfonia
Mark Elder, conductor

Finzi: The Fall of the Leaf
Mahler arr. Britten: What the Wild Flowers tell me
Mahler: Rückert-Lieder
Brahms: Symphony No 1

Brahmsís First Symphony, one of the greatest of all Romantic symphonies, was first performed with considerably smaller musical forces than we are used to hearing today. Sir Mark Elder conducts Britten Sinfonia in a performance that returns to the spirit of those early concerts and allows the details of Brahmsís extraordinary lyrical masterpiece to shine through.

To accompany the work, Elder has chosen Mahlerís sublime RŁckert-Lieder, with mezzo Elisabeth Kulman, and Finziís soaring elegy for orchestra. Benjamin Brittenís arrangement of the second movement of Mahlerís Third Symphony completes the eloquent programme.
