Matthias Goerne and Seong-Jin Cho

Special Vocal Recital

Part of

The Baker-Baum Concert Hall

Legendary German baritone Matthias Goerne, one of the world’s most renowned Lieder singers, joined by internationally sought-afterpianist Seong-jin Cho perform a selection of songs by Wolf, Pfitner, 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.

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