Zachary Gordin, baritone; Bryan Nies, piano
 
Reynaldo Hahn Chansons Grises, and other songs
Ralph Vaughan Williams The House of Life

Known primarily for their work on opera and concert stages on the West Coast and abroad, acclaimed baritone Zachary Gordin and pianist/conductor Bryan Nies join forces to present an intimate recital of vocal music highlighting the works of Venezuelan/French composer Reynaldo Hahn. Featured in this rare recital program are Hahn’s Chansons Grises, along with other favorites, including À Chloris, Dans la nuit, Trois jours de vendage, Néère, and many more. Also on this recital is Ralph Vaughan Williams’ song cycle The House of Life. These dynamic artists bring a full range of vocal and musical expression to their performance—from powerful walls of sound, to translucent and heartbreaking melodies—in music from the height of Romantic French and English song.
