Sinfonia Viva

Benjamin Appl Baritone Benedict Holland Leader/Director Strauss - Metamorphosen Mahler - arr. Tarkmann Kindertotenlieder Mozart - Divertimento in B flat, K137 Stravinsky - Three dances from The Soldier’s Tale Françaix - Divertissement for bassoon and string quintet Strauss’s Metamorphosen, in its original septet version, is a powerful lament reflecting the despair Strauss felt both at the physical destruction of Germany and also the shattering of German artistic and cultural society. Mahler's moving Kindertotenlieder ('Songs on the Death of Children') is based upon a series of poems by Ruckert which were written as a result of the death of two of his children within a short period of time. The concert concludes with the three dances – Tango, Waltz and Ragtime – from Stravinsky’s The Soldier's Tale. The concert finishes at approximately 9.05pm
