Matthias Goerne and Seong-Jin Cho

Special Vocal Recital

Part of

Legendary German baritone Matthias Goerne, one of the world’s most renowned Lieder singers, joined by internationally sought-after pianist Seong-jin Cho, perform a selection of songs by Wolf, Pfitzner, and Strauss, and Wagner’s Wesendonck Lieder. Wagner once proclaimed “I have not written anything better than these songs and very few of my works will be remembered besides them.” While history has proved him wrong, the Wesendonck Lieder stands out as an absorbing document of Wagner’s complex relationships, revealing the composer in his most fragile mode.

This performance does not include a prelude. 

“Cho is a master. He displayed an impressive variety of tonal colors and remarkable technique, dispatched with jaw-dropping panache.”
