Liederstube Recital Series presents Hugo Wolf: Italienisches Liederbuch - soprano Nathalie Colas, baritone Ryan de Ryke, pianist Eugenia Cheng

  • Pianoforte Studios 1335 S. Michigan Avenue Chicago, IL 60605 United States (map)

The 2015-16 Liederstube recital series concludes with the city's only complete performance of Hugo Wolf's monumental collection of miniatures to poems by Paul Heyse known as the Italienisches Liederbuch.  46 lieder - most of them love songs of one sort or another including the stand alone gems "Auch kleine Dinge," "Benedeit die sel'ge Mutter," and "Ich hab' in Penna einen Liebsten wohnen."

Ryan de Ryke may be the city's hardest working baritone with what seems to be a different recital program every week coupled with performances in opera and oratorio.  He is matched in artistry and prolificness by Nathalie Colas who will be featured in Haymarket Opera Company's upcoming production of La Calisto as well as in her own Petite Musique Collective.  Liederstube founder, author, and mathematician Eugenia Cheng is their virtuosic and highly detailed collaborator.
