G&abor Tak&acs-Nagy conductorAnna Stephany mezzo soprano

A portrait of composers struck by the love bug. The muse for Webern’s uncharacteristically lush early Slow Movement was Wilhelmine M&ortl, his future wife. Brahms’s Liebeslieder Waltzes explore love in all its shapes and forms. Dvorak’s Love Songs, in an arrangement here by David Matthews, are all settings of romantic poems by Gustav Pfleger-Moravsky. Souvenir de Florence by Tchaikovsky, king of melodies, was dedicated to his mystery patron, Nadezhda von Meck, whom he never actually met.

Talking Point, 6.30pmTonight’s soloist Anna Stephany talks about her career and the songs she will perform this evening
