Northwest Sinfonietta

Jennifer Bromagen, soprano

Rossini – La camniale di matriomonio Overture
Morton Feldman – Madame Press Died Last Week at 90
Schubert (arr. Golijov) – She Was Here
Verdi – La Traviata: Prelude to Act III
Schubert – Symphony No. 3

“This is a program dedicated to song and storytelling through music. Schubert was a hero to so many great composers, and Golijov’s unique arrangements of Schubert songs entitled She was Here are hauntingly beautiful – especially when paired with the prelude to Act III of Verdi’s La Traviata. The transition from La Traviata to Schubert’s Symphony No. 3 is a truly magical juxtaposition, starting from the foreshadowing of death and loss to the brightening of a youthful and hopeful 17-year-old Schubert.” – Eric Jacobsen, Northwest Sinfonietta artistic partner
