VIENNA: CITY OF SONG
SATURDAY, MAR 28 2015, 02:30 PM
Pianist Matthew O'Dell will be performing at the Bruno Walter Auditorium at the NY Public Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center. Sopranos Katherine Whyte and Jacquelyn Stucker and baritone Alexander Tall will be joining him in a recital called Vienna: City of Song, inspired by the manuscript of Mahler's Revelge, which the library owns and will be displaying for the audience.
Mahler's Revelge, Das himmlische Leben, Lob des hohen Verstands, and Scheiden und Meiden.
Berg's Sieben frühe Lieder and his two settings of Schliesse mir die Augen beide. Written 25 years apart, these songs give a quick and fascinating glimpse of Berg's development as a composer.
Schoenberg's incredibly entertaining Brettl Lieder, which may surprise those who only know Schoenberg from his 12-tone works.
The New Hampshire-born pianist Matthew Odell began his studies at the age of 10 and has since won acclaim for performances of a wide range of repertoire as a solo recitalist, soloist with orchestra, and chamber musician. He has been hailed as “excellent” by the New York Times and “brilliant . . . playing with total commitment and real abandon” by Gramophone. Recent concerts have including such diverse projects as Messiaen’s Des canyons aux étoiles. . . with Maestro David Robertson and the Juilliard Orchestra for the reopening of Alice Tully Hall, a performance in the New York Philharmonic’s Stravinsky Festival, and solo recitals of Messiaen’s Vingt Regards sur l’Enfant-Jésus. He also performed numerous contemporary works for piano and orchestra with the AXIOM Ensemble and completed a sixconcerttour of Taiwan with the Hampton Trio.
