Programme Information


MAHLER Piano Quartet in A minor
WAGNER Siegfried Idyll

MAHLER Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen (arr. Eisler and Stein for Baritone and Chamber Ensemble)

An evening of intense Romantic harmonies. Wagner’s Siegfried Idyll was composed as a private birthday offering to his wife and was first performed on a staircase at the family home on Christmas morning – six years later, themes from the Idyll were woven into the epic opera Siegfried. Mahler’s own poems for Songs of a Wayfarer reveal the emotional aftermath of a failed romance that left the young composer in abject despair.

Concert generously supported by James and Angela Kellie.
