Gypsy Love Songs – World Premiere
January 9, 2016, 8pm
Cheryl Blalock, soprano, Sally Mouzon, mezzo, Adam Ferrer-Miller, tenor, and Michael Morris, bass, with Bryan Baker and Jason Sherbundy, dual pianists, perform the world premiere of San Francisco composer Ken Malucelli’s “Gypsy Love Songs,” based on Brahms’ fiery “Zigeunerlieder” (Op. 103, Nos. 1-11 & Op. 112, Nos. 1-4). Newly transcribed for piano four hands and with new English texts by Malucelli, the cycle is an exciting challenge for singers and pianists. The program, also a CD release event, includes additional vocal and piano solos and duets by Brahms, Schubert, Strauss and Granados.
