Alice Coote, Eric Owens, and Julius Drake

In this final concert of our 2019-2020 vocal series, we are privileged to welcome back the eminent bass-baritone Eric Owens for his second 92Y performance of the season, joining with the sublime mezzo-soprano Alice Coote, whose performances of Mahler “hit you like a thunderbolt” (The Times of London).

We hear Beethoven’s ode to a distant beloved before delving into the world of Mahler with the magnificent Rückert-Lieder. Following intermission, Owens and Coote will unite to perform songs from Mahler’s collection of songs with texts drawn from the folk poetry collection Des Knaben Wunderhorn—the assembly of which was overseen by the brother of the husband of Antoine Brentano, the woman thought to be Beethoven’s “beloved.”
