Simon Rattle and the London Symphony Orchestra welcome radiant soprano Camilla Tilling for Villa-Lobos’s sensuous Bachianas Brasileiras No. 5. “Astonishing force of nature” (Guardian, U.K.) violinist Patricia Kopatchinskaja performs the devilishly virtuosic Violin Concerto by György Ligeti. The program culminates in Mahler’s sunlit Fourth Symphony, built around a heavenly Bavarian folk song in which “everything awakens for joy.”
“Brimming with personality, individuality and panache.”– Gramophone on Kopatchinskaja
“A player of rare expressive energy and disarming informality, of whimsy and theatrical ambition.”– New York Times on Kopatchinskaja
“Tilling’s fresh-sounding soprano is a protean Classical instrument . . . everywhere employed with such unassailable technical mastery.”– BBC Music Magazine on Tilling
