Programme Note

Through songs by Alma and Gustav Mahler, Fauré and Debussy, we catch a glimpse into the art song salons of Paris or Vienna near the end of the 19th century. Lesser known works by Johanna Müller-Hermann and Joseph Marx lead the way to Gustav Mahler's wayfarer cycle Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen, raising the question of where the 19th century itself was to be heading.

Florian and Mark met during their student days at the Royal Academy of Music in London and found congenial musical partners in each other from the get-go. Their specialty is the close-knitted musicianship and refreshing interpretative drive that have earned them recognition in the world of song. Together, they have won the 2023 Helmut Deutsch Song Competition with an electric performance of songs by Schubert, Wolf and Mahler. Shortly afterwards, they won the Prix de mélodie at the 2023 Nadia et Lili Boulanger International Song Competition in Paris. This programme will see them join forces on what promises to be an insightful and entertaining tour through art songs of the 1800s.
