Please join us for a night with Robert Schumann. One of the most turbulent and complicated Romantic era composers, Schumann is best-remembered for his piano works and songs. On this program, we will explore Dichterliebe ("A Poet's Love"), Schumann's beloved song cycle that tells a story of love and loss; the tender and joyous Adagio and Allegro arranged for clarinet and piano; and the curious Humoreske, a major piano work not often performed in the United States. Faculty pianist Richard Masters is joined by faculty friend Ariana Wyatt, soprano, and Yevgeny Dokshansky, clarinetist.
Masters, an associate professor of piano and collaborative piano in the School of Performing Arts, is a soloist, opera coach, chamber musician, and orchestral pianist.
His significant collaborations include concerts with baritone Donnie Ray Albert, flutist Valerie Coleman, mezzo-soprano Marta Senn, the late mezzo-soprano Barbara Conrad, and many others. He has appeared with former Boston Symphony principal trombonist Norman Bolter, former Juilliard String Quartet violinist Earl Carlyss, saxophonist Harvey Pittel, and under the baton of the late Lorin Maazel. Masters has performed solo, chamber, and vocal recitals throughout the United States and in Europe.
Masters is a Yamaha Artist.
