NYTB Concert Series: TheWinterJourney
NYTB Concert Series presents:
Darren Chase, baritone & Michael Scales, piano
Franz Schubert's famous song cycle, Winterreise (The Winter Journey), is a seventy-minute meditation on love and loss in wintertime. Its 24 songs form a story arc that has captivated audiences since 1828. Darren Chase performs his own English translation of the work, creating a direction connection between listener and text. Michael Scales accompanies this two-man opera.
Erik Satie's Piéces Froides (Cold Rooms) were composed in Paris the winter of 1896-97, offering both humor and introspection as remedies for the season's numbness and deprivation. These two sets of solo piano works form a prelude to Winterreise.
$10 suggested donation at door. Performance is held at New York Theatre Ballet.
NYTB's Concert Series is an intimate, in-house evening devoted to music curated by NYTB Music Director, Michael Scales.
