ALPHABET SERIES: G is for German Giants
G is for German Giants
13 November 2015, 8pm, Living Room
Art songs are the result of the perfect marriage of music and text—one cannot exist without the other, and both are shaped and influenced by the other half. Often, the author of the text is forgotten but the composer is recalled. This imbalance is addressed with a recital that features the works of one of the greatest German writers, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, whose influence on the art song movement is not to be underestimated. This titan is matched by other German giants of the musical world—Brahms, Mendelssohn, and Schumann.
