An Afternoon of Lieder 

Nicholas Kilkenny, baritone
Yuechen Xiao, piano

A performance of two iconic song cycles: Robert Schumann’s Dichterliebe, Op. 48 and Johannes Brahms’ Vier ernste Gesänge, Op. 121. The cycles were both written with the image of Clara Schumann in mind: one focusing on the joys and pains of love, while the other is a reflection on the pain and eventual embrace of death.
