TONIGHT: Miah Persson and Malcolm Martineau

From Carnegie Hall to Spivey Hall...

Alas, Florian Boesch has had to withdraw, but Miah Persson and Malcolm Martineau have devised a truly wonderful recital program.

Good tickets still available for tonight -- Saturday, March 25 at 7:30 PM.  Pre-concert talk by Dr. Kurt-Alexander Zeller at 6:30 PM.

Here's what The New York Times had to say about their performance earlier in the week:

Her Vulnerable Gesture

With a simple gesture of her hands, complementing a crucial moment in the first song of Schumann’s beloved cycle “Frauenliebe und -leben,” the exquisite soprano Miah Persson showed how movement and music can blend powerfully in a song recital. A vulnerable young woman casts aside the “games of my sisters.” Instead, she will “weep silently” in her chamber, aching for a man she has just seen. Ms. Persson stretched out her arms and sang intently: She seemed to be saying, “Bring it on — desire, excitement, pain, the whole works.” ANTHONY TOMMASINI
