Concert with Alannah Robins and Ramin Haghjoo
Alannah Robins, mezzo-soprano and Ramin Haghjoo, Piano. Goethe’s Mignon character is found in Wilhelm Meister’s Apprenticeship. With her songs resonant of Sehnsucht, she has become the archetype of the displaced child. Alannah will sing settings of Mignon’s lieder by Hugo Wolf and Franz Schubert. The concert will also include some of Ian Wilson’s Games, settings of the Serbian inter-war poet Vasko Popa, Poulenc’s Deux poèmes de Louis Aragon and works by Galway’sTom Cullivan, Rachmaninoff and Aleksandr Borodin.
