Whether singing The Magic Flute or premiering a new American opera, Nathan Gunn is always compelling. As The New York Times puts it, “He brings all kinds of excellence to his work: musical intelligence, crisp rhythmic delivery and sensitivity to the text, impressive acting skills, and daring physicality.” For this recital, he’s joined by his wife, pianist Julie Gunn, and the Pacifica Quartet for a newly commissioned work.

The contemporary work on this program is part of My Time, My Music.
