Sabine Devieilhe & Mathieu Pordoy
There were cheers about the New York debut of soprano Sabine Devieilhe and pianist Mathieu Pordoy. Opera News called the performance one of the most intriguing recitals in recent history, praising its exciting demonstration of musical individualism, stylistic inventiveness, expressive power and diversity. The French musicians join forces in the Small Hall in a varied program with songs by Berg, Mozart, Wolf and Richard Strauss.
Berg, Mozart, Wolf and Richard Strauss
Around a beautiful bouquet with work by one of late Romanticism's most important song composers, Hugo Wolf, this rich program places two beautiful flower arrangements with songs and short piano works by Alban Berg and Richard Strauss. Van Berg's singers chose songs from his early tonal period; He only used the twelve-tone technique in the second setting from 1925 of Schliesse mir die Augen. The concert is supplemented with several compositions by Mozart, Richard Strauss' idol.
