Last summer I traveled to Germany after completing the German Intensive
class at Bard. My initial interest in German stemmed from singing, and the desire
to deepen my understanding of German text both in Lieder and German Opera.
While in Berlin, I decided that I wanted to perform a set of Lieder for one of my
Senior Recitals at Bard. I already loved Schubert, and had sung a handful of
his songs. Schwanengesang was a perfect fit for this recital, because not only is
Schubert one of my favorite German composers, but I also got to work with the
incredible German poetry of Rellstab and Heine, which I had already studied in
my German class.
