An Evening of New Music by Michael Linton

Poetry by Franchetti and Catullus

Weill Recital Hall
French bass-baritone Edwin Crossley-Mercer makes his New York debut in the premiere of Carmina Catulli, a 17-movement song cycle on the poems of Catullus. Tenor H. Stephen Smith, who recently performed in Carmen with the Folkoperan at BAM, premieres Seven Franchetti Songs, settings of poetry by the Italian-American polymath Cody Franchetti. Both works are by composer Michael Linton. Because the poems of Catullus deal with issues of sex in a frank manner, some members of the public might find them objectionable.
