Miguel Zazueta, voice will be presenting his D.M.A. recital, Meeting Halfway, featuring music by Henze, Britten, Muhly, and Zazueta on Saturday, April 30th at 3:00 p.m. in the Conrad Prebys Music Center, Experimental Theater. He will be accompanied by Dr. Kyle Adam Blair, piano and Quartet Nouveau.


In this recital I intend to share my personal journey with the concept of intimacy in music. Questioning: What is to be truthful in music? How to be intimate in a musical performance? How can I share what matters to me through a melodic line and a fictional context? Or, as written in the song cycle “Stranger” by Muhly “Is it possible to recover and interpret the past?”.

With all this questions in mind I will present for you four beautiful and very different song cycles:

The elegant “Three Auden Songs” by Hans Werner Henze, the passionate “Seven Sonnets of Michelangelo” by Benjamin Britten, the highly provocative “Stranger” by Nico Muhly, and lastly, “Tres Memorias” of my own authorship.

The accompanists for this recital will be Dr. Kyle Adam Blair in the piano (Henze, and Britten), and Quartet Nouveau (Muhly).

I hope you can join me and my collaborators in this beautiful musical evening.

Miguel Zazueta
