About This Performance

Making her first recital appearance in Philadelphia, world-renowned soprano Barbara Hannigan is acclaimed for her superb virtuosity and inspired artistry, having earned the highest praise from audiences and critics alike. With longtime collaborator Reinbert de Leeuw, she presents an evening of repertoire rarely heard on our series: songs by the composers of the late Romantic period and Second Viennese School. This revolutionary group of turn-of-the-century composers encapsulated the creative tension between the past and new modernist approaches.
