Haunted Blue

"All the works revel in spectral zones between light and shadow, loss and connection, classical and jazz." 
– Classical Minnesota Public Radio

It was an unlikely partnership: a jazz pianist/composer and international award-winning Schubert vocalist, but the sparks of Jeremy Walker and Clara Osowski‘s artistic collaboration appeared the first time they performed together. The result was Haunted Blue—music by Walker with poetry by Walt Whitman, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and Twin Cities lyricist Greg Foley.

MPR’s New Classical Tracks host Julie Amacher observed the album was comprised of “songs that may reflect the future of classical music” and asked, “If Franz Schubert were composing songs today, would they sound like the songs heard on this new recording?”

Tienda by Reinaldo Moya

This unique performance at TPT Street Space in Lowertown, St. Paul will feature a partially staged opera by Schubert Club Composer-in-Residence Reinaldo Moya with words by Caitlin Vincent. Among the singers and instrumentalists featured in this chamber opera is mezzo soprano Clara Osowski. The opera tells the story of Luis Garzón, a Mexican musician who immigrated to Minneapolis in 1886 and opened a small Mexican grocery store, or tienda, in St. Paul in the 1920s. While Luis had married an American woman and was fully integrated into Minneapolitan society, his store served as a community hub for the newest arrivals from Mexico, many of whom had fled the Mexican Revolution and now toiled in the sugar beet farms of rural Minnesota. Tienda explores the immigrant experience: what must be left behind—and what cannot be forgotten—on the journey to a new home. This world premiere performance of Tienda is one of the highlights of Moya’s two-year residency with the Schubert Club.

Before Schubert: Haydn's songs

Because we associate Schubert as the master of the Lied, the cosmopolitan songs of Haydn often go unnoticed and are frequently less programmed. We will explore the texts and the development of the piano as a dramatic element, and highlight the importance of Haydn’s song specifically within the development of Lied and daringly early romanticism.

Featuring  Das Leben ist ein Traum, The Wanderer, and She Never Told Her Love with pianist Casey Rafn.

Free admission.
