Description

LIEDER ALIVE!’s is thrilled to announce the 2018/19 Liederabend Series, which will include five exciting recital programs from September 2018 through April 2019. Now in its eighth season, the series will open with “Neue Lieder, Neue Welt” (New Songs, New World), a celebration of the 19th century Brazilian composer Albert Nepomuceno and his muses, Brahms, Grieg, and Chausson, performed by one of LIEDER ALIVE!’s two exemplary Artists-in-Residence, mezzo-soprano Kindra Scharich, and São Paulo-based pianist Ricardo Ballestero. The season will continue with a special performance of Brahms’ Liebeslieder Waltzes and other works performed by pianist Mikael Eliasen and a group of outstanding musicians from the prestigious Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia; the return engagement of baritone Eugene Villanueva and pianist Peter Grünberg (LIEDER ALIVE!’s other Artist-in-Residence), performing Brahms, Strauss, and Tosti; bass Kirk Eichelberger and pianist Simona Snitkovskaya performing the première of a commissioned work by Canadian composer Veronika Krausas titled Kandinsky Lieder, with Mussorgsky’s Songs and Dances of Death; and an evening of Beethoven and Schumann performed by Ms. Scharich and pianist Jeffrey LaDeur. All recitals will take place in the concert hall at the Noe Valley Ministry—an intimate and convivial performance space perfectly suited to the tradition of Liederabend—and will be followed by a reception with the artists.
