Franz Schubert’s Winterreise is the featured concert for the Los Alamos Arts Council’s Brown Bag Performance Series at noon Feb. 5 in Fuller Lodge.
Schubert’s intimate confession as he approached death at age 31, contains 22 songs. It tells of a man running from a broken heart so desperately, he must leave in the dark of a winter’s night. Santa Fe Opera mezzo soprano Alicia Solomon sings in German “A stranger I came, a stranger again I leave,” and the journey begins.
The evocative music weaves the landscapes, without and within, so that we see and feel with the traveler. Concert pianist Juanita Madland who was featured in the New York Times after playing in a Cliburn competition enhances a gamut of emotions in this duo.
Madland has played for Metropolitan opera singers, but most enjoys Winterreise with Solomon’s great emotional singing. It is the most varied and harmonic piano playing she has done. Solomon and Madland partnered in Schubertiade last year.
Madland just returned from giving a concert at her Alma Mater Viterbo University in LaCrosse, Wisconsin, then played in Minneapolis, and immediately gave Trinity on the Hill Church a dedicatory recital for their piano.
