Songs from the heart with Magdalena Kožená.
Can you enjoy all three of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? Or do you have to compromise? We explore this question with sublime arias by Mozart and Gluck, sung by Czech soprano Magdalena Kožená.
The concert is constructed in an old-fashioned style, with arias interceding the movements of Mozart’s passionate Symphony no. 40. Sweets songs of love from The Marriage of Figaro are contrasted with the challenges of duty in Mozart’s swansong, La Clemenza di Tito.
