Friday, January 24, 2020
Edman Chapel, 7:30 pm
Internationally acclaimed British tenor Ian Bostridge and Chinese classical guitarist Xuefei Yang began their collaboration in 2014 with the recording, Songs from Our Ancestors. This collaboration knits together a diverse array of composers and styles to represent the duo’s respective musical cultures. The program features music by John Dowland, Benjamin Britten, Franz Schubert and many others. Xuefei Yang’s 2015-16 solo appearance on the Artist Series was a season favorite.
Join us for the pre-concert program Grace Notes at 6:30 pm.
- Dowland: In darkness let me dwell
- Schubert Lieder: Die Mainacht
- Britten: Nocturnal after John Dowland, Op 70
Ian Bostridge's clear tone and exemplary diction maintain a warm, intimate quality and he could not ask for a more responsive musical partner; Xuefei Yang's playing is sensitive, agile and graceful, both when functioning as an accompanist and on the instrumental solos.— BBC Music Magazine
