Louise Alder soprano
Gary Matthewman piano

As we reach the 19th century in our Monday-lunchtime survey of music spanning over 800 years, soprano Louise Alder returns, with pianist Gary Matthewman, for a solo recital of songs from across Europe, including Lieder by Schubert, and by both Mendelssohn and his sister Fanny (published under her married name of Hensel), whose final song, ‘Bergeslust’ – completed just a day before her death at the age of only 41 – tempers joy with a poignant ending. The many facets of love are exposed in Felix Mendelssohn’s ‘Der Mond’ and ‘Neube Liebe’, as well as in Chopin’s ‘Śliczny chłopiec’ (Handsome Lad) and songs by Liszt and Rossini.

Duration: approx. 1 hour (no interval)
