Event Details

In their Festival debuts, mezzo-soprano Fleur Barron and pianist Julius Drake perform several powerhouse miniatures, including Brahms’s atmospheric “Nachtwandler” and Ives’s distinctive arrangement of “At the River” as well as the Chinese folk song “Northeast Lullaby” and the Uyghur art song “Ananurhan,” which Zubaida Azezi wrote for Ms. Barron. The program also features Chen Yi’s two-song collection Meditation, which draws its text from ancient Chinese poetry, and two landmark song cycles: Berg’s Four Songs, Op. 2—a youthful, exploratory work that dates from Berg’s student days with Schoenberg—and Dvořák’s much-loved Cigánské melodie, Op. 55.
