March 4: Opera Choruses
No opera is complete without a least one good chorus. In this presentation, we’ll enjoy some of the best known opera choruses by Verdi, Wagner, Weber and Puccini and get to know their context.
March 11: The Songs of Franz Schubert
The art song (“Lied”), the perfect marriage of poetry and music, is the flower of romanticism. Join Joseph as he takes you on a journey through nature, love and tragedy in the early 19th century.
March 18: Curious Instruments
Names like Pan-flute, Baryton or Jew’s Harp might not be common in the concert hall, but they are not merely musical curiosities – they have interesting history, as well as unique repertoire, written by well-known composers (and some less well-known).
