Benjamin Hulett tenor
Gustav Mahler: What the Wild Flowers Tell Me
Arr. Benjamin Britten
Benjamin Britten: Nocturne, Op. 60 (1958)
songs for solo tenor voice and full orchestra
Pyotr Tchaikovsky: Symphony No. 5 in E minor, Op. 64
For his late symphonies, Pyotr Tchaikovsky drew inspiration from life’s big crises. While the Fourth Symphony depicts man’s battle with fate, the Fifth probes even more deeply into the secrets of the soul: destructive love, sore disappointments and sentiments of despair before the inevitable.
Benjamin Britten’s last orchestral song cycle is performed by the tenor Benjamin Hulett, who has appeared at major venues including the Bavarian State Opera and London’s Covent Garden. Nocturne is an enigmatic work where sounds echoing from the dark and a vivid imagination mix with delirious visions detached from reality. Under Chief Conductor Rumon Gamba’s baton, the works of Britten and Tchaikovsky emerge as a perfect combination.
