Welcome to the intimate art of the part-song, a popular form of 19th century harmony most often sung around a loved one’s parlor piano. Night Songs and Love Waltzes showcases three compositional masters of this lost tradition – Franz Schubert, Robert Schumann, and Johannes Brahms – as well as brand new music from contemporary composer Ricky Ian Gordon. The evening will conclude with a specially arranged suite of waltzes from Stephen Sondheim’s A Little Night Music. What better way to embrace the coming spring than with this joyous and romantic celebration of shared song?
