Faculty Recital Series: Diane Kalinowski, soprano

Tuesday, March 29, 2016 - 8:00pm
Walker Recital Hall

Soprano Diane Kalinowski and pianist Dr. Nathan Hess present an evening of art song to welcome spring. Selections include a three-song scene in which a girlfriend cheers for her beloved in a Venetian boat race (La regata veneziana by Rossini); a depiction of morning ("Morgen" by Strauss); a set of three scenic songs by Rachmaninoff culminating in one of his most popular songs ("Spring Waters"); and three romantic Polish songs by Chopin ("The Ring," "The Bridegroom" and "My Darling"). The evening ends with an American set of three Robert Browning Poems by Harriet Amy Beach ("I Send My Heart Up to Thee," "Ah, Love But a Day" and "The Year's at the Spring!"). Dr. Joseph Kneer will join Kalinowski and Hess to play the virtuosic violin obligato in Mozart's concert aria "Non temer, amato bene" (K. 490). The recital is free and open to the public; call 824-2394 for more information.
