Ensemble Artists Ethan Taylor (tenor) and Hayden Barrington (baritone) spread their vocal wings in this Close-Up program of two works from both ends of art song history – Beethoven’s majestic An die ferne Geliebte (“To the distant beloved”), the first narrative song cycle, and Gabriel Kahane’s astonishing 2018 work, Book of Travelers, a fusion of classical, jazz, and pop that weaves a musical tapestry of stories collected during the composer’s 6000-mile train journey across the USA.    With Associate Artistic Director Francis Greep on the piano.
