  Brooklyn Art Song Society is proud to announce the third installment of its ongoing festival Clara, Robert, and Johannes.  This concert features Robert Schumann's rarely heard masterpiece Myrthen Op. 25, a cycle of 26 songs written as a wedding present to his wife Clara.  The set includes many of Schumann's most iconic songs including Widmung and Der Nussbaum as well as many lesser-known gems.  Returning BASS favorites soprano Martha Guth and pianist Erika Switzer are joined by German tenor Nils Nuebert in his company debut.  The unique Firehouse Space in East Williamsburg is the perfect venue for this personal and intimate work- be sure not to miss it!

About Clara, Robert and Johannes:
   Brooklyn Art Song Society is proud to present Classical music's greatest love triangle played out in song.  Robert Schumann and Clara Weick, married in defiance of their families' wishes, had a legendary romance that tragically ended with Robert's mental breakdown.  Lifelong bachelor Johannes Brahms pined for the widowed Clara, but she remained loyal to her deceased husband and Brahms did not dare betray his once friend and mentor even from beyond the grave. This poignant tale of unrequited love and bittersweet loss provides the context for five magnificent concerts of Clara's complete songs and the major song cycles of Robert and Johannes.

About Brooklyn Art Song Society:
  Hailed by the New York Times as "ambitious" and "a company well worth watching," the Brooklyn Art Song Society (BASS) will enter its fourth season of first-rate music making in the fall of 2013. Dedicated to the vast repertoire of poetry set to music, BASS presents programs of epic scope yet intimate at the same time. Past highlights have included performances of the complete songs of Charles Ives, Henri Duparc, a festival of works from Franz Schubert's last year 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, Libby Larsen, Lowell Liebermann, and Yehudi Wyner, and has commissioned works from Brooklyn-based composers Marie Incontrera and Michael Rose.  The 2013-14 season will feature concerts in Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Boston and South Bend, Indiana of works by Johannes Brahms, Lowell Liebermann, Michael Rose, Clara and Robert Schumann, and Hugo Wolf featuring some of the worlds finest young singers including sopranos Martha Guth and Laura Strickling, mezzo soprano Wallis Giunta, tenor Dominic Armstrong, baritones John Brancy and Michael Kelly, pianists Spencer Myer and Erika Switzer, and many, many more.  For more information visit: www.brooklynartsongsociety.org
