Programme Note

Song played a vital part in the creative development of each of the composers in Florian Boesch’s recital.

Gustav Mahler and Richard Strauss explored poetic and expressive ideas in their songs that set lasting models for the modern German Lied, shot through with descriptive writing for voice and piano that induces performers and audiences to share vivid journeys of the imagination.
