Paul Appleby by Jonathan Tichler, Natalia Katyukova by Kristin Hoebermann
Versatility, polished vocal tone, and interpretive depth are but a few of tenor Paul Appleby’s hallmarks, and he uses them all in this recital of songs that span the 19th century to the present day. The selections from Schubert’s posthumously published Schwanengesang are masterpieces that ponder nature, love, and loss. Britten’s Winter Words explores a tremendous range of emotions in eight songs set to poetry of Thomas Hardy unfold as miniature dramas with brilliant clarity and detailed word painting.

George Crumb’s The Sleeper

When the late mezzo-soprano Jan DeGaetani—a friend and advocate of composer George Crumb—asked him for a “short” song, he responded with The Sleeper. Crumb used a prepared piano and some daring vocal writing to vividly evoke the eerie mood of Edgar Allan Poe’s meditation on a deceased loved one. The singer whispers and slides through a rising and falling vocal line, while the pianist strums and plucks the instrument’s strings to create haunting effects, including the conjuring of a bell tolling at midnight.
