19. Magical Mysteries: Katharina Ruckgaber, Ashley Riches & Sholto Kynoch

14 October 2019, 7:30pm - 9:20pm

Expect spells to be cast, to be bewitched by love, to be enchanted by nature and the night and to be surrounded by mischievous, magical figures. Katharina Ruckgaber and Ashley Riches explore the literal and symbolic appearances of magic in song, with music by Mozart, Schubert, Loewe and others. The Faust legend features again, not least in Schubert’s seminal ‘Gretchen am Spinnrade’.

NB: this programme may also feature real magic. People of a nervous disposition are nevertheless welcome.
