Benjamin Appl explores repertoire inspired by or written in the USA, but by composers who were not themselves American: Korngold, Dvorák, Weill, Schoenberg, and the Anglo-American Rebecca Clarke. The exception is a set of three songs by Samuel Barber that was composed for the great German baritone Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau.

Tonight’s Emerging Artists begin the concert with a performance of Thomas Adès’ Five Eliot Landscapes, five brilliantly inventive and colourful settings of the American poet T.S. Eliot that include views of New Hampshire, Virginia and Cape Ann.
