Poet J. Mae Barizo and Soprano Charlotte Mundy join us for an exciting collaboration intertwining Robert Schumann's song cycle Frauenlieben und leben, op. 42, and new songs by our own Doug Balliett. J. Mae has written poems responding to Chamisso's painfully-dated 19th century text about a woman's life and love. The settings of Doug's new songs will be interweaved with a re-imagining of Schumann's original work for our group.
The program will be presented at the stunning Louis K. Meisel Gallery of photorealism in SoHo, and followed by a intimate reception where you can meet the artists.
