AUGUSTA READ THOMAS: Prayer and Celebration
CANTELOUBE: Chants D’Auvergne (Series 5)
Lucy Fitz Gibbon, soprano
MAHLER: Symphony No. 4 (Chamber Version)
Lucy Fitz Gibbon, soprano

Songs come in many forms, and this powerful program features three very different styles. With the “dazzling” voice of soprano Lucy Fitz Gibbon, we present Canteloube’s beautiful series of folk songs from France’s rural Auvergne region.  Mahler’s Symphony No. 4 ends with a very different kind of folk song  while the opening work is described by Thomas as an intimate “song” that is, very fittingly for this performance, a “kind of homage to Mahler.”
