The rest of this musical night includes Ernst Toch’s Geographical Fugue and culminates with Johannes Brahms’ Liebeslieder Waltzer. Eileen Morris, Karen Carle, Michael Mendelsohn and Aurelio Viscarra sing the Brahms in German. An English translation of this down to earth love song is in your program. The following is a brief excerpt:
“The stream dashes against the stones,
anyone who doesn’t learn to sigh at that
will learn it when they fall in love.
Oh, women, women,
how they distill rapture!
I’d have become a monk long ago
Except for women!”
Don’t miss this wonderful evening of musical entertainment that, in addition to making you laugh, will make your soul tremble, “overcome by love, pleasure and pain…”
