The great Canadian soprano Measha Brueggergosman brings to life Mahler’s dramatic vision in Des Knaben Wunderhorn, a setting of German folk poems filled with imaginative orchestral colour and harmony. Plus, Samuel Coleridge-Taylor’s inventive and playful 4 Novelletten for String Orchestra cover the gamut from plaintive violin solo to playful dance suites.
