Aperio, Music of the Americas presents Gabriel Kahane
Aperio, Music of the Americas presents Gabriel Kahane in concert: Craigslist, Schumann, & Other Inspirations.
In this unusual song recital, songwriter and composer Kahane accompanies himself in Schumann’s monumental cycle "Dichterliebe," drawing connections between the romantic German song tradition of the 19th century and the singer-songwriter tradition of contemporary American pop music. In addition, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of his cult song cycle "Craigslistlieder," composed in 2006 and since performed by hundreds of singers including four-time Tony-winner Audra McDonald, Kahane will perform the complete work: eight irreverent yet poignant song settings of classified ads from craigslist.org. To round out the program, Gabriel will draw on songs from his latest LP, The Ambassador.
