Ryan Wigglesworth

Joanne Lunn*, soprano

Soprano Joanne Lunn joins the versatile Ryan Wigglesworth in Mozart’s aria for soprano, piano and orchestra ‘Ch’io mi scordi di te’ (‘Should I forget you’). The two soloists interact exquisitely in one of the greatest declarations of love in all music. Mozart’s C major Symphony was also influenced by opera and exudes both tenderness and impish humour. Joanne returns in the second half of the concert as soloist in Mahler’s magnificent Fourth Symphony. The first movement recalls Mozart’s classical style, the second evokes the grim fiddler of German folklore and the third is a sublime slow movement. Finally comes a setting of poetry depicting a child’s vision of paradise, with sweets in profusion and bread baked by angels.

This concert will be broadcast live on BBC Radio 3 on Thursday 9 November 2017. Please visit the BBC Radio 3 website for more details.

*The Hallé Concerts Society is grateful to Joanne Lunn for replacing Elizabeth Watts, who has had to withdraw.
