Titan – German Romantics IV

Titan – German Romantics IV

With the generous support of the German Embassy in Athens
Christoph Poppen returns to the Athens State Orchestra podium in the wake of last season’s universally acclaimed appearance. On this occasion, he will be conducting Mahler's First Symphony, a truly titanic work in terms both of the orchestral forces it requires and—more crucially—its emotional and intellectual power. The exceptional German mezzo-soprano, Henriette Godde, will also be performing Wagner’s Wesendonck Lieder, musical settings for poems by Mathilde Wesendonck, with whom the great composer shared an unspoken love.
