Songs from the Old World and the New

November 14, 2020, 7:30 PM

With Jennifer Bates, soprano and Timothy Burris, lute and guitar

Every musical tradition has included songs spanning the range of human emotions. This program brings together early 17th-century love songs by Claudio Monteverdi; Schubert's meditation on 'night and dreams'; two of Argento's Letters from Composers: a humorous setting of a letter of complaint by J.S. Bach to the Leipzig Town Council, and a setting of a letter of despair penned by Franz Schubert with echoes of "Gretchen am Spinnrade." The program concludes with works by Heitor Villa-Lobos: Prelude #3 for solo guitar and the composer's own voice and guitar arrangement of Bachianas Brasileiras #5 (originally for voice and eight celli).
