Mezzo TV will be broadcasting the London Symphony Orchestra concert with Sir Simon Rattle and Barbara Hannigan tonight at 8:30 pm (CET).
On the programme:
WEBERN Six Pieces
BERG Three Fragments from ‘Wozzeck’
LIGETI Mysteries of the Macabre
STRAVINSKY The Rite of Spring
Canadian soprano Barbara Hannigan brings her phenomenal coloratura voice to bear on three bravura arias from Ligeti’s opera Le grand macabre and three extracts featuring Marie, the doomed heroine of Berg’s Wozzeck. The ‘dazzling diamonds’ of Webern’s Six Orchestral Pieces and Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring, a century old but still fresh as paint, open and conclude this tremendous programme, conducted by Sir Simon Rattle.
