Westben presents Schumann Liederabend

Date:Friday, July 6, 2018
Time:7 - 9 p.m.
Location:    Westben Arts Festival Theatre (6698 County Road 30, Campbellford)
Wallis Giunta, mezzo and Alexander Dobson, baritone with Brian Finley, piano. Two of Schumann’s most moving works for voice & piano describing loves found & lost, Frauenliebe und Leben and Dichterliebe."Liederabend" means "Song Night". "Lieder" is a type of German art song featuring poetry set for voice, with piano accompaniment, although the piano is considered an equal partner. The program features two "Song Cycles" (collections of German lieder), sung in German, but there will be translations, as well as a discussion about the music and poetry beforehand. One cycle will be sung by the mezzo, and the other cycle will be sung by the baritone. Robert Schumann is the composer of both song cycles.
