A Schubert Liederabend

Having just returned from performances in the 2008 Ascoli Piceno Music Festival, Italy, where Helene was honored with the festivals Una vita per la musica award for her lifetime contributions to the musical arts, the duo present a special program of Schuberts lieder. Perfect for a winter evening in January, these twenty-four songs express the ideals of the German Romantic poets whose texts Schubert set: the spiritual inspiration of being in harmony with Nature; the forces of good and evil on our souls; and the impact of love, in all its forms, on our lives.
