About the Event

Join Pizzicanto for a concert of songs about love in all its forms. Let this Boston based soprano-cello duo open their hearts and home to you with musings on love of one another, love of life, love of the Earth, and love of culture set to music by masters of the past and present, including J.S. Bach, Heather Gilligan, Kit Soden, and Lori Laitman. First, let the music of J.S. Bach open your heart through his cantata, Öffne dich, mein ganzes Herze. Second, the words of Russian poet Anna Ahkmatova, set by John Tavener, explore a rich devotion to home and heritage. The first half ends with simple tranquility created by Heather Gilligan’s 2017 song cycle, Living In Light. The second half opens with one of Robert Schumann’s most romantic Lied ever, Meine Rose. Keeping in this vein, passion flows forth from The Love Poems of Marichiko, set to 6 songs by Lori Laitman. The afternoon will end with notes on the relationship between humanity and the world around us through Kit Soden’s Tabula Smaragdina, arranged specially for Pizzicanto. Let soprano Theodora Nestorova and cellist Alexander Fowler join together strings and songs to warm your hearts and hearths from their cozy home studio in Acton, MA.
