Songs from the East: Benjamin Appl & Graham Johnson

17 October 2017, 7:30pm 20 June 2024 - 4:16pm

Already internationally known, Benjamin Appl is joined by the ‘peerless song accompanist’ (Daily Telegraph) Graham Johnson for a programme of Lieder vom Orient that includes Brahms’s Op.32 songs, settings of Platen and Daumer. The eastern-inspired poetry of Rückert, Heine, Goethe, Geibel and Byron is heard in songs by Schubert, Schumann – whose Rückert settings were surely an influence on Mahler – Cornelius, Loewe and others. 

  • Hugo Wolf (1860 - 1903)
  • Epiphanias (1891) from Goethe-Lieder
