From 'Sleeping Beauty' and 'Tom Thumb' to ghostly lovers and St Anthony preaching to the fish, vibrant Portuguese conductor Joana Carneiro unveils a magical world of musical fairy tales, myths and legends in two iconic works of wonder and delight.
Ravel’s 'Mother Goose' Suite recounts fantastical fables in some of the composer’s most exquisite music, while Mahler mined German folklore for earthy humour and swashbuckling heroism in his larger-than-life 'Des Knaben Wunderhorn'.
Joined by two of today’s most accomplished singers, Carneiro weaves together the movements of the two works, creating a glittering storybook of musical fantasy.
