SCHUMANN Dichterliebe, Op. 48
·· Im wunderschönen Monat Mai
·· Aus meinen Tränen spriessen
·· Die Rose, die Lilie, die Taube, die Sonne
·· Wenn ich in deine Augen seh'
·· Ich will meine Seele tauchen
·· Im Rhein, im heiligen Strome
·· Ich grolle nicht
·· Und wüssten’s die Blumen, die kleinen
·· Das ist ein Flöten und Geigen
·· Hör' ich das Liedchen klingen
·· Ein Jüngling liebt ein Mädchen
·· Am leuchtenden Sommermorgen
·· Ich hab' im Traum geweinet
·· Allnächtlich im Traume
·· Aus alten Märchen
·· Die alten, bösen Lieder

Encore:SCHUMANN "Die Lotosblume," Op. 25, No. 7

Program is approximately 1 hour, 30 minutes, including one intermission
Schumann dedicated himself almost completely to songwriting in 1840. Out of that “year of song” came both Liederkreis and Dichterliebe. Padmore and Bezuidenhout perform these settings of poems by German Romantic poet Heinrich Heine, along with five songs on Heine poems by a Schumann contemporary, that deal with the relationship between art and love.

Mark Padmore will be signing CDs after this concert.

She began as a violinist, but Stotijn’s decision to pursue a music career as a singer is clearly our gain. As BBC Music Magazine critic David Nice puts it, this Dutch mezzo-soprano is truly charismatic—“that artist in a thousand whose personality shines through everything she does.” Find out for yourself as she sings Tchaikovsky, Mussorgsky, Brahms, and more in Zankel Hall.

Christianne Stotijn will be signing CDs after this performance.

“We wanted something that was languid, sexy, romantic, different … that gives me the chance to really let go.” This is what Brueggergosman said about the music on this program, which is based on her recent recording with Zeyen, Night and Dreams. Now is the perfect chance to hear a soprano with a winning personality—one who not only has technical prowess, but also the charisma to charm audiences no matter what she performs.

Measha Brueggergosman will be signing CDs after this performance.

Rivera is a “stylish and radiant” soprano who's best known for the “luminous” presence she brings to roles in contemporary operas such as Osvaldo Golijov’s Ainadamar and John Adams’s Doctor Atomic, says The New York Times. With the Ensemble Meme and pianist Morkoski, she performs music by Mark Grey and also sings a Schumann song cycle.
