UAlbany Performing Arts: “Latin America in Song” | Ortega, Lifchitz, Turina, and more

Tuesday, April 18th 2017 at 7:00 pm

New York City based vocalists Celia Castro, Anna Tonna and Celeste Mann join forces with pianist and composer Max Lifchitz in a program entitled Latin America in Song. The program features art songs dealing with love and longing by composers from Spain and Latin America.

This intimate one-off a kind program brings texts alive in Spanish, Portuguese and Italian by, among others, Brazilians Chiquinha Gonzaga and Claudio Santoro; Peruvian Clotilde Arias; and Spaniard Joaquín Turina. Of special interest, will be the premiere of a song cycle especially written for the occasion by Barcelona-based Miquel Ortega and one by Max Lifchitz inspired by the poetry of Mexico’s muse–the 17th century intellectual and women’s rights activist Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz.

This concert was rescheduled from Monday, February 13th due to the winter storm.
