Sari Gruber, soprano
Benjamin Binder, piano

Sari Gruber and Benjamin Binder present some of their favorite songs from almost 20 years of collaboration, as well as a few songs they've never performed in concert before. Come revel in the moody sensuality of Debussy, the romantic intensity of Rachmaninoff, and the poignant sonic landscapes of Grieg and Barber. Fresh off her performance as the wily maid Despina in Pittsburgh Opera's recent production of Mozart's Così fan tutte, Sari will bring her brilliant sense of character to some hilarious and touching songs by Ives, Bolcom, and Strauss. Don't leave before the encores!


Claude Debussy: Ariettes oubliées
Edvard Grieg: Six Songs, op. 48
Sergei Rachmaninoff: "They Answered," "Lilacs," "Fragment from Musset"
Samuel Barber: "The Daisies," "Nocturne"
Charles Ives: "Memories," "Serenity"
William Bolcom: "Amor"
Richard Strauss: "Das Rosenband," "Hat gesagt...bleibt's nicht dabei," "Meinem Kinde," "Schlechtes Wetter"
