Schubert Songs Come to MHC February 7

Mranz Schubert's Winterreise, a cycle of twenty-four songs inspired by the poetry of William Mueller, is among the most admired of all Romantic compositions. It depicts the winter wanderings of a young man, disappointed in love, driven by sorrow from the warmth of human community. Completed just months before Schubert's own early death, this autobiographical work offers a wide range of emotions. A performance of Winterreise to be held Friday, February 7, at 8 pm in Pratt Hall's McCulloch Auditorium, part of the Warbeke Memorial Concert series, will feature baritone Richard Lalli and pianist Janet Schmalfeldt. Prior to the concert, at 7 pm in the Warbeke Room, MHC music professor Louise Litterick will offer an informal lecture on Schubert's song cycle.
Lalli is an associate professor of music at Yale University, where he has taught since 1982. He has given solo recitals at London's Wigmore Hall, the Spoleto Festival USA, Washington's National Gallery of Art, New York's Merkin Hall, and the United States embassy in Paris. Schmalfeldt, associate professor of music theory at Tufts University, has appeared frequently as a pianist in chamber and solo recitals and with orchestras in Montreal, New Haven, and Boston. In September, Lalli and Schmalfeldt collaborated to perform Winterreise at Boston's Goethe Institut.

The counter is 2,132
