In May we welcome back Michael Seal, who will conduct a programme of music from around the turn of the twentieth century. We begin with Debussy's remarkable Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune; we then accompany soprano Susan Young in songs from “Des Knaben Wunderhorn” by Mahler. The “Wunderhorn” theme ends the concert as we play Mahler's delicate and affecting Fourth Symphony, which draws on these songs for much of its inspiration.
