Faculty Recital: Caroline Helton, Matthew Bengtson, and Aaron Berofsky

Sunday, January 14, 2018

8:00pm, Earl V. Moore Building, Britton Recital Hall


Matthew Bengtson, fortepiano
Aaron Berofsky, violin
Caroline Helton, soprano
The creative explosion of the German Lied in the late 18th and early 19th centuries was ignited by the popularity of the fortepiano, along with Goethe and the great composers who set his poetry to music. Please join us for an evening of poetry and music, in which a number of settings of Goethe’s poetry will be performed, placing familiar Lieder by Schubert, Beethoven, and Mozart alongside their lesser-known contemporaries, Carl Friedrich Zelter and Johann Friedrich Reichardt. In the tradition of the Hauskonzert in the time of Schubert, the program will feature instrumental as well as vocal music, with SMTD Professor Berofsky performing Mozart’s Piano and Violin Sonata in B-flat, K.454.
