Music of Schubert, Schumann and Liszt Feb. 21

Students and faculty join St. Louis Symphony musicians for Community Partnership Program

Three musicians from the St. Louis Symphony will join baritone Keith Boyer, a master’s candidate in vocal performance at Washington University in St. Louis, and pianist Amanda Kirkpatrick, teacher of applied music in Arts & Sciences, for a free performance at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 21.

Sponsored by the Department of Music and the symphony’s Community Partnership Program, the concert will open with two works by Franz Schubert. The symphony’s Alison Harney, principal second violin, and cellist Elizabeth Chung will first join Kirkpatrick for Nocturne in Eb Major, Op. 148 (1827).

Kirkpatrick then will be joined by Boyer and Roger Kaza, the symphony’s principal horn, for Auf dem Strom (“On the River”), Schubert’s 1828 setting of the poem by Ludwig Rellstab.

Next, Chung and Kirkpatrick will present Three Fantasy Pieces for cello and piano, Op. 73 (1849) by Robert Schumann. Kirkpatrick also will perform Franz Liszt’s transcription of Schumann’s Widmung (1848) for solo piano, followed by Liszt’s own Elegie No. 1 for cello and piano (1874).

The program will conclude with two works for solo piano from Liszt’s Années de pèlerinage (“Years of Pilgrimage”): Sonetto 123 del Petrarca and Sonetto 104 del Petrarca, both from the suite Deuxième année: Italie (“Second Year: Italy”) (1837-49).

The performance will take place in the Ballroom Theatre of the 560 Music Center, located in University City at 560 Trinity Ave., at the intersection with Delmar Boulevard.
