Love Sonnets

Sunday, March 12, 5:00 PM at Alice Tully Hall

Soprano Julia Bullock has been called "ravishingly visceral" by The New York Times and The New Yorker describes her as "such an exciting up-and-comer that she could conceivably headline her own mini-series at Lincoln Center."

From César Franck’s musical wedding gift for Eugène Ysaÿe to Ravel’s romantic Greek melodies, love and courtship take center stage in this delightful program. A collection of Petrarch’s timeless love sonnets will be brought to electrifying life in a new work of composer Jonathan Berger, while Dvořák’s folk-infused D major piano quartet will bring the evening to a thrilling conclusion.

Join us for a pre-concert composer chat with Jonathan Berger at 4:00 PM in the Rose Studio, free for ticket holders.
