Part of the Strauss’s Voice Festival, we are joined by BBC New Generation artist Ruby Hughes in a selection of Richard Strauss’ songs for smaller orchestra, and a late night performance of the composer’s Metamorphosen, a moving elegy for the destruction of German culture brought about by the Second World War. It quotes the funeral march from Beethoven’s Eroica Symphony, perhaps the first expression of heroic aspiration in music. You will also hear Mozart’s Piano Concerto no.25, featuring Liverpool-born Paul Lewis, internationally recognised as one of the finest pianists of his generation.

REmix: Young people from Greater Manchester create a new song cycle inspired by Strauss.
