Ludwig van Beethoven’s Liederkreis an die ferne Geliebte, sung by tenor MARK DUFFIN, and Richard Strauss’ Opus 27 (“Ruhe, meine Seele,” “Cäcilie,” “Heimliche Aufforderung,” and “Morgen!”), sung by baritone GRANT YOUNGBLOOD, present the universal themes that bear the burden of our personal dramas.  Soprano ELISABETH TURCHI and countertenor DAVID STANLEY tie together the themes with a rich selection of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Franz Schubert, Johannes Brahms, and Hugo Wolf in an elegantly curated program.
