Angelic Harps, Mortal Tears: music of Robert Schumann and Paul Hindemith

Boston Conservatory faculty member Pamela Dellal (mezzo-soprano) and guest artists Michael Manning (piano), Roy Sansom, Emily O’Brien and Héloïse Degrugillier (recorders) present lieder and instrumental works of Robert Schumann and Paul Hindemith. Schumann’s late, crypto-spiritual song cycle, Lenau-Lieder (op. 90), explores the border between intense romantic longing and spirituality. This characteristic resonates with Hindemith’s greatest song cycle, Das Marienleben, an exploration of the life of the Virgin Mary on poems by Rilke. Instrumental works by both composers will also be featured, including a recorder trio based on American folk tunes.

SCHUMANN: Nachtstücke, op. 23, No. 3 and 4
SCHUMANN: Sechs Lieder und Requiem, op. 90
HINDEMITH: Selections from Das Marienleben
HINDEMITH: Piano Sonata No. 3
HINDEMITH: Trio for Recorders from Plöner Musiktag
