Will Liverman & Myra Huang Recital

Event details

Tickets Available.

Grammy Award–winning baritone Will Liverman and acclaimed pianist Myra Huang—both in their Festival debuts—perform a wonderfully rich program that ranges from Carl Loewe’s folklore-infused, early-19th-century gem “Erlkönig” to Michael Ippolito’s evocative 2021 song cycle The Long Year, which was written for and premiered by Liverman and Huang. The program also includes the short but poignant “Grief” by groundbreaking 20th-century composer William Grant Still, Vaughan Williams’s high-spirited Songs of Travel, Rachmaninoff’s dark-edged “Sud’ba,” which takes its inspiration from the famous four notes that open Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5, and more.
