SIR JOHN TOMLINSON WITH COUNTERPOISE
7.30pm St George’s Church, Deal
Kokoschka's Doll has been created especially for Sir John Tomlinson and Counterpoise by John Casken. It focuses on the sensational and dramatic affair between artist Oskar Kokoschka and Alma Mahler. This dramatic work references music by Wagner, Gustav and Alma Mahler and forms the second half of tonight’s concert. In the first half, mezzo-soprano Rozanna Madylus adopts the role of Alma, and performs songs by Alma and Gustav Mahler, Wagner and Zemlinsky as part of a sequence of music arranged by David Matthews (former Artistic Director of Deal Festival).
