Lieder and Lovesongs: Skylark Ensemble


During a time when classical instrumental music underwent a remarkable metamorphosis (from Brahms to Stravinsky and beyond), the popular love song experienced a parallel evolution, from the romantic lieder of 19th century Europe to the "American Standard" of the 1920s, 30s, and 40s. This charming program will pair melodies from romantic masters such as Brahms, Schubert, Debussy, and Saint-Saëns with offerings from American songwriters such as Cole Porter and Irving Berlin.
