Since his sensational Festival debut last year, Benjamin Appl has been cementing his reputation as one of the most exciting talents of his generation. Now he returns, once again accompanied by James Baillieu, with a programme of music from or inspired by Eastern Europe. We travel with Gypsies through rugged Rhenish landscapes; hear psalms from the Czech Bible of Kralice; and – in true Romantic tradition – languish in the bittersweet emotion of poems by Lenau and Heine.
