Musical Poetry: Exploring the Classical Art Song

Barbara Gonzalez-Palmer (Music)

Since the late 18th century, classical art song has attempted to heighten our experience of poetry—an already independent art form.  Some of the greatest works of music are in these magical miniatures, written by such masters as Beethoven, Schubert, Schumann, Brahms, Debussy, Barber, Copland, and countless others.  Through a musical “tour” of art song, we will explore the close relationship between text and music, pianist and singer.
