The first ‘divas’ of western classical music would have sung in salon concerts, especially as young artists, and would have heard the music of rising composers and performers - such as Robert Schumann, whose Frauenliebe und Leben (“A Woman’s Life and Love”) will be performed by emerging artist Chelsea Duval-Major, mezzo-soprano. The salon was also a place of experimentation and philosophical debate, so we pair Schumann’s rather stereotypical portrayal of a woman’s life-journey with So Free Am I, a 21st century work by composer Ben Moore, featuring texts written by women spanning 1400 years, which describe their lives, their liberty or lack thereof, their yearnings, and their strength. IWC Artistic Director Meagan Johnson, soprano, will perform these songs, accompanied by IWC’s Assistant Director and Accompanist, Tyler Secor, who will also give a solo performance of some of Johannes Brahms’ stunning Intermezzos, which likely would have been heard in the salons of the 19th century.
