Recital of Romantic masterworks at Carnegie Hall


On March 19, Elina Garanca reunites with pianist Kevin Murphy on the main stage of Carnegie Hall for a recital highlighting three composers from the Romantic era.

The Latvian mezzo-soprano, who last sang at Carnegie in 2013 also with Murphy at the keyboard, begins with selected works by Brahms including “Von ewiger Liebe,” “Liebestreu,” “Geheimnis,” “Ruhe, Süssliebchen,” and “Die Mainacht.”

The second half of the program visits the French Romantic period with three songs by Duparc — “Au pays où se fait la guerre,” “Extase,” and “Phidylé” — followed by pieces by Rachmaninoff including “Oh no, I beg you, do not leave,” “Twilight,” “The Answer,” “Night is Mournful,” and “Sing not to me, beautiful maiden.”
