SF Performances Presents: French Song and the Belle Epoque

SEE EVENT DETAILS
The music of Europe's Belle Epoque inspires tenor Nicholas Phan, the Alexander String Quartet and SF Performances' music historian Robert Greenberg to explore French song, featuring the poetry of Paul Verlain, as set by Debussy and Faure, in an afternoon performance and lively lecture.

Named one of NPR's "Favorite New Artists of 2011," American tenor Nicholas Phan is increasingly recognized as an artist of distinction. Praised for his keen intelligence, captivating stage presence and natural musicianship, he performs regularly with the world's leading orchestras and opera companies. Also an avid recitalist, in 2010 he co-founded the Collaborative Arts Institute of Chicago (CAIC) to promote art song and vocal chamber music.

The Alexander String Quartet is a major artistic presence in its home base of San Francisco, serving since 1989 as Ensemble-in-Residence for San Francisco Performances and Directors of the the Morrison Chamber Music Center in the College of Liberal and Creative Arts at San Francisco State University.

Robert Greenberg has performed, taught and lectured extensively across North America and Europe. He has served on the faculties of the University of California at Berkeley, California State University East Bay, and the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, where he chaired the Department of Music History and Literature. Greenberg has lectured for some of the most prestigious musical and arts organizations in the United States, including the San Francisco Symphony (where for ten years he was host and lecturer for the Symphony's nationally acclaimed "Discovery Series"), the Chautauqua Institute, the Ravinia Festival, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, and many more.

Greenberg is extremely well known for the forty-eight lectures he recorded in a course entitled "How to Listen to and Understand Great Music" for the Teaching Company/Great Courses Program of Chantilly, Virginia.
