Caramoor / Brentano Quartet & Dawn Upshaw, soprano

Friday, July 15, 2022  08:00pm 


7:00pm / Join us for a conversation with Brentano violinist Mark Steinberg and composer Melinda Wagner. 

The Brentano String Quartet and soprano Dawn Upshaw join forces for this special evening. Early English work will flow toward the famous Lament from Purcell’s opera Dido and Aeneas, in which Dido confesses an intensely intimate plea to a friend. After intermission, composer Melinda Wagner and librettist Stephanie Fleischmann breathe new life into Dido, imagining her psyche, her vulnerability, and her strength. This unique monodrama will probe a truly compelling character through the concentrated closeness of the chamber music experience.
