Night and Dreams, with the Celebrity Series
Sunday, March 13, 2022
On WCRB In Concert with the Celebrity Series of Boston, pianist Jeremy Denk explores the musical and romantic bonds between Brahms and the Schumanns. Then soprano Ying Fang sings light-hearted chansons by Bizet and achingly beautiful songs by Rachmaninoff, plus Schubert's tempestuous "Night and Dreams."
