Kindra Scharich & Jeffrey LaDeur
The 2018/19 Liederabend Series will come to a splendid close with a performance by this exquisite duo of Beethoven’s An die ferne Geliebte (To the Distant Beloved), the composer’s only true song cycle, and the first important example of the form. Scharich and LeDeur—two of LIEDER ALIVE!’s most sought-after and acclaimed contributing artists--will pair this masterwork with two great works by Robert Schumann, Frauenliebe und Leben, Opus 42, and also Fantasie, Opus 17, the piano solo that demonstrates Schumann's deep admiration for Beethoven in his myriad quotations of An die ferne Geliebte. Kindra Scharich, mezzo-soprano Jeffrey Ladeur, piano
