The Poetic Spirit
featuring Paulina Swierczek and Tony Yike Yang
The Royal Conservatory of Music, Mazzoleni Hall 7:00PM

Cost: $30 - tickets available at the door only, general admission

Join us for a magical evening of music-making demonstrating the poetic spirit behind the works of three great composers: Schubert, Schoenberg and Chopin. This special concert will be curated with introductory talks by Maria Case and Janet Lopinski. The role of Franz Schubert in enhancing the message of poetry through his musical settings will be demonstrated through a group of powerful lieder performed by soprano Paulina Swierczek. Arnold Schoenberg’s delightful Brett-Lieder (Cabaret Songs) reveal a little-known side of his musical personality, bringing lyricism and humour within a surprisingly tonal context. And, finally, the musical poetry of Frederic Chopin will be presented through the youthful lens of prize-winning pianist Tony Yike Yang.
