Before Schubert: Haydn's songs

  • The Baroque Room St. Paul MN (map)

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.
