Magdalena Kožená & Friends | Europe | October 2019
Oct 2019 - Oct 2019

Introduction

Capturing the atmosphere of informal, domestic music making, Czech mezzo-soprano Magdalena Kožená brings together an outstanding group of musical friends, including Sir Simon Rattle, for an intimate and highly personal collection of songs.

The international programme – which mirrors her most recent collaboration with Pentatone, Soirée – features the songs of Brahms, Strauss, Chausson, Ravel, Stravinsky, Dvořák and Janáček, including new arrangements by conductor and composer Duncan Ward.

Joined by Sir Simon Rattle (in his recording debut as a pianist), violinists Giovanni Guzzo and Rahel Rilling, viola player Amihai Grosz, cellist Dávid Adorján, flautist Kaspar Zehnder and clarinettist Andrew Marriner, the tour travels from Switzerland to Poland, via France, Spain and Greece.
