76. Dame Sarah Connolly, Eugene Asti: Brahms, Schumann, Mahler

29 October 2022, 7:30pm - 9:00pm

Please note that the £5 unsighted tickets are behind the rood screen, and behind the performers.

It’s always a special occasion when Sarah Connolly appears at the Festival, and we’re delighted to welcome her and Eugene Asti for this year’s closing concert. For this wonderful finale, they bring a programme of Robert Schumann and Johannes Brahms – coming full-circle from our opening night! They also include a selection of songs from Gustav Mahler’s masterful, folk-inspired settings of Des Knaben Wunderhorn: an uplifting send off. 

Please note this programme has been slightly amended and will no longer include songs by Strauss and Schoenberg.

Watch Sarah and Eugene perform 'Ich bin der Welt abhanden gekommen' from Mahler's Rückert Lieder:
