Signature Series: Blair Voices
Amy Jarman, soprano Gayle Shay, mezzo soprano Tucker Biddlecombe, tenor Jonathan Retzlaff, baritone with Ben Harris and Jennifer McGuire, pianos In Three-Quarter Time The Blair Voice Department comes together for a delightful afternoon of music for vocal quartet and two pianos, four hands. Included in the program is one of Johannes Brahms most beloved works, the Liebeslieder Waltzer, op. 52. With each piece composed in three-quarter time, these Love Song Waltzes explore a variety of moods and emotions, ranging from tender to exuberant. Canadian composer John Greer's Liebeslied-Lieder offers a unique accompaniment to Brahms masterpiece. Sung in English, this witty and acerbic work combines many dance-form styles (bolero, tango, foxtrot, ragtime) with the words of American writer Dorothy Parker, among others. Rounding out the program is the colorful and virtuosic La Valse by Maurice Ravel, for piano duo.
