Word, Song, Masterpiece traces the flow of inspiration from poetry to song to instrumental music that has birthed so many of our favorite chamber music masterworks.
Word: The Frost Place Poetry Center is partnering with us to pair the evening's music with exquisite poems and translations by masterful German poetic translators.
Song: Celebrated mezzo soprano, Thea Lobo*, will take us on the next step of our journey, pairing text with melody.
Masterpiece: Having heard the poem and the song it is based upon, we listen to Schubert's "Trout" Quintet as if for the first time.
Klughardt: Schilflieder (Song of the Reeds) for Viola, Oboe, & Piano
Schubert, Brahms: Selected Songs
Schubert: Trout Quintet
