An Afternoon of
Romantic Chamber Music

Clarinetist Dr. Vincent de Luise, Soprano Becky Nesmith and Pianist Jenny Li will perform a classical chamber concert titled An Afternoon of Romantic Music. The Romantic period was one of the most innovative in music history, characterized by lyrical melodies, rich harmonies, and emotive expression. The ensemble will perform masterpieces by three illustrious romantic era composers of the 19th century Louis Spohr, Johannes Brahms and Franz Schubert. Their selections include three German Songs (from the sechs deutsche Lieder, Op. 103) by Louis Spohr; the poetic second sonata for clarinet and piano by Johannes Brahms (Eb major, Op 120 no. 2); and the glorious “Shepherd on the Rock,” (Der Hirt auf dem Felsen) by Franz Schubert.
