Works of romantic composers will be performed in an intimate setting when Linfield College hosts a traditional musical liederabend.
Students will perform the liederabend on Thursday, Nov. 2, at 7 p.m. in the lobby of the Vivian A. Bull Music Center at Linfield.
A liederabend is a gathering of friends, featuring an evening of song designed for an intimate living-room atmosphere rather than the formal grandeur of a concert hall. The tradition began in Vienna in the early 19th Century. Many romantic composers, including Schubert, Schumann, Brahms and Fauré, contributed to this genre.
Voice students of professors Anton Belov and Hannah Penn will present a program of English, German, Italian, French and Spanish art songs, accompanied by pianist Susan McDaniel. Light refreshments will be served.
The recital is free and open to the public and is sponsored by the Linfield College Department of Music. For more information, call 503-883-2275 or visit linfield.edu/arts.
