Songs of Parting: Music by Mozart, Haydn, and others

Experience a thrilling collaboration between two Early Music superstars as soprano Carolyn Sampson and fortepianist Kristian Bezuidenhout present a recital of music by Mozart, Haydn, and their contemporaries. The program explores themes of love and separation to richly varied effect. From the pleading of Mozart’s Lied der Trennung to the pathos and longing of Haydn’s Die Verlassene, from the tender lament of Mozart’s Abendempfindung to the anguished despair of Haydn’s Arianna a Naxos, explore the gamut of emotions when lovers are parted.
