Schubertiade - Die shöne Müllerin
Town Hall Seattle
Seattle, WA
Share this event:

Franz Peter Schubert was among the first of the Romantics, and the composer who, more than any other, brought the art song (lied) to artistic maturity. During his short but prolific career, he produced masterpieces in nearly every genre, all characterized by rich harmonies, an expansive treatment of classical forms, and a seemingly endless gift for melody. Despite his short life (1797  1828), Schubert produced a wealth of symphonies, operas, masses, chamber music pieces, and piano sonatas, most of which are considered standard repertoire.
He is known primarily for composing hundreds of songs. He pioneered the song cycle with such works as Die Schöne Müllerin, and Die Winterreise.
Composed on poems by Wilhelm Müller, Die schöne Müllerin  is the earliest song cycle to be widely performed. Müller's poems were published in 1820, and Schubert set most of them to music between May and September of 1823. Die schöne Müllerin is one of Schubert's most admired works, and it is frequently performed and recorded.

Soprano Christina Kowalski  is a native of Germany, where she earned her Master's Degree in Music and Drama from the Hochschule für Musik und Kunst in Frankfurt am Main.
Ms Kowalski has performed with numerous orchestras, opera companies and organizations throughout the Northwest and Europe. She made her debut in the United States as Marzelline in Beethoven's Fidelio at the Mark Theater in Portland and her most recent engagement was as Rosalinda in "Die Fledermaus" with Skagit Opera. She has been an affiliate artist faculty member at the University of Puget Sound since 2005 and is a doctorate student at the University of Washington.

Originally from the Ukraine, Svitlana Smaga received her Masters degree in Piano Performance from the Donetsk State Conservatory.  Currently collaborative pianist for Tacoma Opera, she  previously served as a piano instructor and staff accompanist at the College of the Siskiyous in California.
Her recent engagements as accompanist include a master class with Sherrill Milnes, Rogue Opera's productions of Madama Butterfly and L'elisir d'amore, Tacoma Opera's productions of Cosi fan tutte, La Traviata and Il Barbiere di Siviglia.
Svitlana is a regular guest pianist for the internationally acclaimed Rimsky-Korsakov String Quartet from St. Petersburg, Russia.
