Tenor Benjamin Bernheim Piano Carrie-Ann Matheson
Love and the sea
Lieder by Brahms, songs by Chausson and Duparc
A new star in the firmament of vocal artists, Franco-Swiss tenor Benjamin Bernheim is not only the Faust or Werther of his generation, he also embraces the subtle, intimate art of the solo recital. The proof is in this melancholic program, in which Ernest Chausson’s prodigious Poème de l'amour et de la mer (Poem of Love and the Sea) converses with gems by Henri Duparc, a composer of unsurpassed melodies, and lieder by Johannes Brahms.
