Evidently it's Diva Month in Boston

Here I go again: up to Boston for another Diva. This time it's La Diva Renée with Hartmut Höll at the piano.

Luckily the program is:

Olivier Messiaen
From “Poèmes pour Mi”
Action des graces
Paysages
La maison
Les deux guerriers

André Previn
The Giraffes Go To Hamburg

John Kander
A Letter from Sullivan Ballou

Korngold
Ich soll ihn niemals, niemals mehr sehn from Die Kathrin

Richard Strauss
Verführung, Opus 33, no. 1
Freundliche Vision, Opus 48, no. 1
Ständchen, Opus 17, no. 2
Winterweihe, Opus 48, no. 4
Zueignung, Opus 10, no. 1

Korngold
Marietta’s Lied from Die tote Stadt

SarahB,

This is going to be an experience not to miss from the program that Renee has chosen to perform. My favorite selections would have to be the Erich Korngold compositions. I wonder how "Ich soll..." with its rich orchestral score will sound played on the piano by the incomparable Hartmut Holl compared to the recording of it on her "Homage" CD?
