‘Che puro ciel’ – Ann Hallenberg


Internationally-acclaimed Swedish mezzo-soprano Ann Hallenberg makes her company début in a dynamic programme of rare and familiar masterpieces from the second half of the eighteenth century. Hallenberg sings a fascinating selection of arias by Gluck and Mozart, and the programme also features two superb but rarely performed minor-key symphonies - “ an intense and fiery C minor symphony by Johann Martin Kraus (known in his day as 'the Swedish Mozart') and a G minor symphony by Mozart's friend and mentor, 'the London Bach'.
