- Franz Schubert – Mirjam’s Siegesgesang
- Johannes Brahms – Ziguenerlieder
Darius Battiwalla – conductor; Nigel Gyte – piano
Vivid scenes are drawn in song – in Schubert’s Mirjam’s Siegesgesang (‘Miriam’s song of triumph’) we hear of escape from Egypt, whilst Brahms’ Ziguenerlieder (‘Gypsy songs’) tell Hungarian folk stories full of exuberant declarations of love, betrayal and romance.
