Voice and Piano

This evening I went to a free concert at UTMB. It was a Mezzo Soprano and piano. It was a good concert. I am not a big fan of solo voice. I like hearing a choir than a solo voice. She does have a great voice and performed well. The 1st half of the concert was both voice and piano. The 2nd half of the concert was the just the pianist performing.

The program:
Pres des ramparts de Seville (from Carman) - Bizet
Mon Pauvre Coeur - Debe
Le Serment de L'Arabe - Debe
Sous Sa Fenetre - Snaer
Ave Maria - Schubert
Must the Winter Come So Soon (from Vanessa) - Barber
Moritat Vom Mackie Messer (Mack the Knife from The Tree Penny Opera - Weill
Give Me Jesus (American Spiritual) - arr. Hogan


A piece by Liszt (I do not remember the title since there was a program change)
Scherzo in B Minor, Op. 20 - Chopin
Sonata in Eb Minor, Op. 26 - Barber

The last movement of the Barber sonata is the well known among musicians. It is in a form of a Fugue.

It was a good concert. Nothing spectacular but it did force me to hear some music performed by very good musicians.
