Daniel Johanson will be presenting the six songs with texts by Heine from Schubert's Schwanengesang. Published posthumously, the songs were published in a different order than Heine's poems. Daniel will be presenting them in the original order, as they appear in his cycle of poetry, Die Heimkehr.
Jordan Crice offers a piano piece written in the same year as the Heimkehr cycle (1827), also published posthumously. The Impromptu in B-flat Major, Op. 142 No. 3, is a dramatic contrast to Daniel's vocal selection, which highlights the immense emotional and stylistic range Schubert had at his command during the final months of his career and life.
