Soprano Susan Narucki and bass-baritone Philip Larson are featured, joined by pianist Aleck Karis. Larson opens the concert with works by Brahms, Mahler, and Hugo Wolf. Following intermission, Narucki's focuses on "three composers who interrelate in a very interesting way: Alexander Zemlinsky, Anton Webern and György Kurtág. Zemlinsky was a fascinating composer. He influenced Schoenberg and the composers of the Second Viennese School, yet had his own distinct compositional path - which was no doubt influenced by his emigration to the United States before the beginning of the Second World War. We are doing a set of pieces that includes some of his earliest songs, full of lush harmonies and sweeping lyricism, as well as some of his poignant later works. I'm also doing Webern, Op.4; a set of five early Webern songs which are set to elusive and beautiful texts by Stefan Georg. And to close, Three Old Inscriptions by the great Hungarian composer, György Kurtág."
