Martyn Brabbins conductor
Annabel Kennedy mezzo soprano
Schoenberg Five Pieces for Orchestra op 16
RCM Concerto Competition winner Annabel Kennedy performs Mahler’s Rückert-Lieder, a collection of songs based on poems by Friedrich Ruckert. If these songs offer a glimpse into Mahler’s soul, Schoenberg’s Five Pieces for Orchestra give an expansive portrait of a composer in the midst of personal and professional turmoil.
The RCM Philharmonic under Visiting Professor of Conducting Martyn Brabbins offers a portrait of the deeply personal expressions of these two contrasting composers.
