Schumann’s cycle Frauenliebe und -leben (‘A woman’s life and love’) was one of the composer’s masterpieces of 1840, arguably reflecting his excitement and fears regarding his much-anticipated marriage to Clara Wieck. Alongside this, tonight’s artists have devised a sequence of Swedish songs that mirror the themes and subjects of Schumann’s cycle, with music by Stenhammar, Grieg and Sibelius that also showcases the incredibly rich canon of Scandinavian song.

Swedish soprano Miah Persson is particularly renowned for her interpretations of Strauss and Mozart operatic roles and her powerful recitals, described by The Sunday Times as having ‘soaring legato in long-breathed phrases and holding the stage with effortless charisma’. Malcolm Martineau is her equally acclaimed partner for this recital.
