Storytelling and Piano Music at the Maybeck

SEE EVENT DETAILS
This concert is perfect for newcomers to classical music! It is ideal for music lovers and also for people that want to get into classical music but are concerned they won't know how to appreciate the performance. The story of Enoch is gripping, and the music serves to make it even more engaging!

Enoch Arden is an epic melodrama, an elaborate tale of tragic loss and noble self denial. Originally published as a poem in 1864 by Alfred Lord Tennyson, the words were set to music in 1897 by Richard Strauss. The resulting dialogue between narrator and pianist weaves a poignant story of friendship, love, separation, and sacrifice.

Poetry by Alfred Lord Tennyson

Narrator: Sonya Schumann
Pianist: Elizabeth Schumann

From the artists:

We've lived with this piece for almost ten years since we first read it together, and it's one of the most powerful pieces I've had the opportunity to play. We have finally finished a recording of the piece, and it's the first time an all woman duo has recorded it (usually it's performed by British men). The concert at the Maybeck will be the first place where the album is available. We hope you enjoy it!
