Ginastera: Cinco Canciones Popolares Argentinas, Op. 10

Argentine mezzo-soprano Bernarda Fink returns to the Perelman Theater with a program featuring Schumann’s well-known song cycle,Frauenliebe und –leben, and art songs from her homelands. Inspired by his marriage to Clara, Schumann’s cycle is a celebration of a woman’s devotion to her husband. Schumann’s piano mastery is evident throughout, as the instrument is given a more prominent role than ever before in the song literature. The second half of the program focuses on Slovenian and Argentinian songs—specifically the canción de cámara, or chamber song. Originating around 1900, it combines European classical style with South American influences and lighter salon fare. The result is some uniquely appealing music that is often tinged with a melancholy beauty.
