Piano and clarinet by Aruko-chan, ©2009-2017 Aruko-chan

Whereas most lieder are written for solo voice and piano, there is some repertoire for voice and ensembles – a form of chamber music, if you will. Clarinettist John Macfarlane has invited Emma to sing a programme of music for voice, clarinet, and piano, together with pianist Hein Putter. The repertoire includes an arrangement of Brahms’ Gestillte Sehnsucht and Geistliches Wiegenlied (originally composed for voice, viola, and piano), songs by Louis Spohr and Margot Wright, and Three Folksongs arranged for voice, clarinet, and piano by John McCabe.

The trio will perform on Wednesday, 25th January at 17:00 at the LUMC Boerhaaveplein and on Saturday, 4th February at the Oxford and Cambridge Society of the Netherlands’ Candlemas evening (members and their guests only).
