Young Artist Recital

NATS-LA

Gerald R. Daniel Recital Hall, CSULB

Mezzo-soprano Erin Alford, NATS-LA's 2019 Young Artist of the Year, returns to her alma mater to present a recital with collaborative pianist Clara Cheng Stosch.  In this exploration of love, Erin juxtaposes Schumann's famous Frauenliebe und leben with works solely by female composers from the Baroque era to the 21st century.  The title of this recital was inspired by Libby Larsen's notes on her Love After 1950, where in comparing her work to Schumann's, she hilariously claimed her cycle was more, "Frau: Love 'em and Leave 'em."
