The Southeastern Chorale, Southeastern Oklahoma State University’s premier choral ensemble, will present Liebeslieder Walzer and Other Songs of Spring, on Thursday, April 24th, 2014 under the direction of Stacy Weger. The Liebeslieder Walzer by Johannes Brahms remains a favorite of the choral repertoire for choir and audience alike. Written in 1869 it reflects not only the intimate chamber music style of the time, but also the intimacy accompanying love in all forms. The extended work is a study of fully developed waltzes, in which the influence of Franz Schubert and Johannes Strauss, the Waltz King, is evident. The lyrics for the Liebeslieder come from Georg Friedrich Daumer‘s Polydora collection of folk songs and love poems. The diversity of music within the extended work presents a varied and lively examination of flirtation, love, and longing. Other pieces to be performed include part-songs by Josef Haydn and Felix Mendelssohn, as well as lyrical works by Renaissance and Contemporary composers.
The concert, which is presented as a part of Brainstorm Research Week, will also feature Brenna Dougherty and Kaela Ganz as student conductors. Serving as accompanists for the Chorale will be Charlie Kim and Timothy Jenkins.
The concert will be held in Fine Arts Recital Hall at 7:30 PM. The event is free and open to the public. For more information please contact the Department of Music at 580-745-2088.
