Brooklyn Art Song Society continues its multi-year survey of the complete songs of Hugo Wolf with all 51 settings from the Goethe-Lieder.  This songbook, the least performed of Wolf's works, features some of his most extended and ambitious songs (Prometheus, Der Sänger) and also features Wolf's unique, quirky brand of humor (Epiphanias, Frech und Froh I).  Some of todays finest interpreters of Wolf's will be featured, including sopranos Kristina Bachrach and Sarah Brailey (BASS debut), tenors Dominic Armstrong and Nils Neubert, and baritones Michael Kelly and Kyle Oliver.  Part one will be held at the charming Old Stone House as part of the new Art Song at the Old Stone House series, and part two will be a free concert at the Deutches Haus on the campus of New York University.  Be sure not to miss this exciting event.


About Brooklyn Art Song Society:
The Brooklyn Art Song Society (BASS) will enter its fifth season of first-music making in the Fall of 2014, having already earned a reputation as one of the preeminent organizations dedicated to the vast repertoire of poetry set to music.  Critics and audiences alike have praised BASS's innovative programming performed in intimate settings.  The New York Times called BASS "a company well worth watching" and Voce di Meche declared, "as long as BASS is around we do not need to worry about the future of art song in the USA." Past highlights have included performances of the complete songs of Charles Ives and Henri Duparc, a festival of works from Franz Schubert's last year, five concerts dedicated to the iconic love triangle between Clara Schumann, Robert Schumann, and Johannes Brahms, and an ongoing project to present the complete lieder of Hugo Wolf. Committed to keeping art song relevant in our time BASS has collaborated closely with important living composers such as Tom Cipullo, Herschel Garfein, Daron Hagen, Libby Larsen, Lowell Liebermann, James Matheson, and Yehudi Wyner, and has commissioned works from up-and-coming composers Michael Djupstrom, Marie Incontrera, and Michael Rose. The 2014-15 season includes a five-concert survey of the songs of Les Six, Hugo Wolf's complete Goethe-Lieder, and the release of its first album on GPR records featuring world premiere recordings of five song cycles.  In addition to a full season of events in Brooklyn, BASS will travel to Boston, Chicago, South Bend, Indiana and Portland, Maine.   BASS is the Fonzaley Resident Ensemble at the Sembrich in Bolton Landing, New York and the ensemble in residence at the Lake George Music Festival.  This season features over thirty of the finest young interpreters of art song.  For more information visit www.brooklynartsongsociety.org
