This concert is the first in the 2nd year of Dolce Suono's 2-year project, "Mahler 100/Schoenberg 60", which marks the centennial of Gustav Mahler’s death in 1911 and the 60th anniversary of the death of Arnold Schoenberg in 1951 with performances of chamber and vocal works by these two iconic composers and the commissioning of six new works reflecting on Mahler and Schoenberg. The project unfolds over two seasons, including concerts in Philadelphia, its surrounding area, and New York City, and a series of educational and community outreach events.
The program for this concert includes Gustav Mahler’s Piano Quartet in A Minor, his only extant chamber piece, Arnold Schoenberg’s Pierrot lunaire, Op. 21, and the world premiere of Shulamit Ran’s Moon Songs: A Song Cycle in Four Acts for Soprano, Flute (doubling Piccolo), Cello, and Piano. Soprano Lucy Shelton is soloist in the Ran and in Pierrot lunaire, one of her signature roles, with the performances taking place during the centennial of this masterwork.
