Classical Spectres


Apr 2, 2017
Ars Lyrica Houston / Zilkha Hall

Interest in the uncanny brought about all manner of oddities during the late 18th and early 19th centuries, from wax museums to gothic fiction. In chamber works from this era, musical depictions of the supernatural took on a life of their own outside the opera house. Shorn of traditional theatrical trappings, the purely aural spectres of Johann Christoph Friedrich Bach and Ludwig van Beethoven make powerful impressions, indeed.

Thomas Meglioranza: baritone
Adam LaMotte: violin
Barrett Sills: cello
Matthew Dirst: fortepiano
