From Folk Poetry

Gustav Mahler - Dmitri Sjostakovitsj - Robert Schumann - Johannes Brahms et al.


Musici of the Chorus and Orchestra of Opera Ballet Vlaanderen perform works by Mahler, Schumann, Brahms and Sjostakovitsj.

Folk art and folklore have been rich sources of inspiration for both Romanticism and Modernism. From the folk gems of Mahler's 'Wunderhorn-Lieder' to Szymanowski's ethnically inspired 'Songs of the Kurpiowska Forest' to compelling, Jewish sounds in Shostakovich's cycle 'From Jewish Folk Poetry': All the music in this concert combines a folk accent with artistic sophistication.

Wunderhorn-Lieder (selection) by Gustav Mahler & songs by Johannes Brahms and Karol Szymanowski

Song Cycle From Jewish Folk Poetry by Dmitri Shostakovich

Drei Fantasiestücke, opus 73 by Robert Schumann (version for viola and piano)

Finnish songs by Erkki Melartin and Yrjö Kilpinen
