In honor of Valentine’s Day, we present music for the loves of women. The brilliant Barbara Kozelj will inhabit Haydn’s dramatic Cantata for Mezzo and Piano depicting the Cretan Princess Arianna’s painful desertion by Theseus on the island of Naxos. She will also take us on the extraordinary woman’s journey that is Schumann’s ‘Frauenlibe und Leben’. Music Director and Accompanist Richard Egarr is joined in an arrangement for 4-hand piano of Mahler’s love-letter to Alma – the bitter-sweet Adagietto from his 5th Symphony.
BARBARA KOSELJ, mezzo-soprano
RICHARD EGARR, keyboard
