Songs without Words

October 16, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 5:15 pm

With a musical approach that’s “distinctly sensual…pliant, warm, and sweet” (New York Times), baroque oboist Debra Nagy expands the repertoire for her instrument with timeless songs whose emotionally-charged melodies stir the passions and inspire improvisation with echoes of jazz. Accompanied by Emily Walhout on viola da gamba harpsichordist Eric Milnes, Nagy breathes new life into torch songs spanning the 17th to 20th Centuries in this program of original arrangements and improvisations. Music by Lambert, Lully, Nina Simone, Billy Strayhorn, and more.
