Friday, April 26, 7:30-10 PM: Spire Duo presents: “Her Light Escape,” a program of art song in English for soprano and piano that mirrors the cyclical nature of the changing seasons. Featuring Emma Rose Lynn, soprano; Andrew T. Pham, piano; and Jorah LaFleur, performance poet.
We begin our journey with the changing colors and falling leaves of autumn, venture through the harsh elements and episodic slumps of the winter, rejoice in the burgeoning of new life in the spring, and finally arrive in the welcome quietude of a warm summer, reflecting on both sentimental moments of the past as well as life's present beauty. The words of master poets such as Emily Dickinson, W. H. Auden, and Robert Louis Stevenson capture the joy, dejection, wonder, and renewal of a year in a life well-lived through the music of composers such as Benjamin Britten, André Previn, Dominick Argento, and more.
