Acclaimed in major opera houses worldwide, bass-baritone Eric Owens brings a charming salon evening to the Library, joined by a quintet of exceptional young artists from the Curtis Institute. Their delightful Liederabend highlights manuscript treasures of art songs by Schubert, Brahms and others, drawn largely from the Library's collections. At its heart are the lilting Brahms Neue Liebeslieder (New Love Songs), a beautiful group of waltzes for four solo voices and piano, four-hands that was an immediate hit in the composer's day. Owens also offers a group of Brahms favorites that include "Meine Liebe ist grün" and "Von ewiger Liebe." And the artists make a bow to our founder, Elizabeth Sprague Coolidge, honoring her lifelong avocation as a composer by performing an art song very special to the occasion: "Thy soul hath snatched up mine," from her 1901 cycle set to poetry by Elizabeth Barrett Browning.


Part of our celebration marking the 225th anniversary of Schubert’s birth.


A Nightcap conversation with the artists will follow the concert.


Pre-concert talk, 6:30 pm, Coolidge Auditorium "Concert Hall Acoustics and the Sonic Ideal in Early Twentieth-Century America: The Coolidge Auditorium (1925)"
