I went to 4 performances this weekend, all different in genres, but can I get an amen from anyone who saw/heard this performance? I have to admit I am a classical singer and love Schubert and have worked on this song cycle. They did such an amazing job. My husband and I had tears in our eyes at the end and they got 4 standing ovations. This was true artistry of the highest form and I was engaged from the first note until the last. Lieder is feeling like a lost art from in this country. It is incredibly challenging for the pianist/singer to engage an audience for an evening of song. Each song is like a mini-opera, telling a full tale in a few moments and telling several in an evening. I applaud the SF symphony for bringing this here. It's hard to get an large audience for this type of work, but it shouldn't be and I hope lieder won't become a lost art.
