About This Performance
Susan Graham, “America’s favorite mezzo” (Gramophone), returns to the Perelman Theater, applying her lustrous voice and exquisite tones to Schumann’s Frauenliebe und Leben (A Woman’s Love and Life), a beloved eight-song cycle sung from a woman’s perspective. Graham and the incomparable pianist Malcolm Martineau have designed a program which supplements Schumann’s work with songs of similar content from various composers around the world, with eight languages represented overall.
Frauenliebe und-leben: Variations
Schumann’s Frauenliebe und Leben with related works by Grieg, Strauss, Mahler, Debussy, Tchaikovsky, and others.
