"Chanson D'Amour" Solo Recital with Master Player Virtual Concert Series

Chansons d’Amour:

French Songs by Gluck, Lully, Hahn, Fauré, Debussy, Duparc and Liszt

 

This program celebrates the history of melodie (French Art Songs), which by the early nineteenth century had firmly established itself as a medium for leading composers, few of whom could resist the lure of dainty odes and sprawling epics written by literary authors such as Victor Hugo and Paul Verlaine. The genre of French Art Song offers an explosion of rich harmonic colors and hypnotic shapes that bask in the natural resonances of words, the repetition of vowel sounds and alliteration. It’s no wonder then, that the mysteries of love which have long been the catalyst of innumerable works of art, finds as intense a union with the passion and dramatic range of the melodie.

 

Praised by the New York Times for "Crucially, deftly navigating the border of genuine emotion through his singing" tenor and UD Associate Professor of Voice and Opera, Isaí Jess Muñoz, joins forces with Russian-Israeli Pianist and UD Collaborative Pianist, Dr. Oksana Glouchko, to bring us this elegant and exciting event.
