Lieder from the Mediterranean

Fatma Said & Kunal Lahiry
{{ message.content }}

Soprano Fatma Said aims to build a bridge between the eastern and western song. The program includes works ranging from European exoticism to the music from the Egyptian art song tradition: from Shéherazade by Maurice Ravel and works by Manuel de Falla and Hector Berlioz, to songs by Gamal Abdel-Rahim and Elias Rahbani. Said contrasts the European fantasy version of Arabic music with authentic works from the region. Fatma Said and Kunal Lahiry approach the trend for exoticism, which reached its zenith in the 19th century, with their own cultural identities, switching fluidly between different styles, techniques and languages. The final part of our series of streams from the Lied Festival Victoria de los Ángeles at the Sant Pau Recinte Modernista in Barcelona.
