Cantata Profana: The Lover in Winter
January 21, 2017
 
From Thomas Adès' The Lover in Winter, for countertenor and piano, flows a program of ardent songs, exquisite song cycles, and wintry expressions of love and yearning. Brahms viola songs, Schumann romances, and Arvo Pärt mix with Lukas Foss' Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird, for soprano, flute, percussion, and piano, and George Crumb's Night of the Four Moons, for alto, percussion, flute, banjo, and electric cello.
