Delve into a world of fantasy and make-believe as SongFusion pianists Liza Stepanova and Kathleen Tagg present a recital dedicated to different ways music can tell stories. From Mendelssohn's magical Midsummer Night's Dream overture, their journey takes them to Poulenc's playful bedtime story about Babar, the Elephant (in a special four-hands arrangement by composer Paul Yeon Lee, commissioned by Pascal Rogé), for which they are joined by narrator Bill Krakauer, and further through two centuries of solo piano works to Lowell Liebermann's exuberant Appalachian Liebeslieder for soprano, baritone, and piano four-hands with guest artists Laura Strickling and Mischa Bouvier.
