Valentine's Day with Brahms and Gershwin


Location: Leighton Concert Hall - DeBartolo Performing Arts Center

Guest Artists from the Brooklyn Art Song Society Kristina Bachrach (soprano) and Michael Brofman (piano) join faculty artist Stephen Lancaster (baritone) to present a delightful Valentine's Day concert of romantic songs and piano solos by Johannes Brahms, and duets by George Gershwin.

Lifelong bachelor Johannes Brahms pined for the widowed Clara Schumann, but she remained loyal to her deceased husband Robert, and Johannes did not dare betray his once friend and mentor even from beyond the grave. The poignant tale of unrequited love and bittersweet loss provides the context for this concert of Brahms' selected songs and 6 Klavierstücke Op. 118.
