Word, Song, Masterpiece: A Collaboration with the North Country Chamber Players

For the second year in a row The Frost Place is pleased to partner with the North Country Chamber Players to offer an exciting collaboration between two arts organizations.  Word, Song, Masterpiece traces the flow of inspiration from poetry to song to instrumental music that has birthed so many of our favorite chamber music masterworks.

Word: The Frost Place pairs the evening’s music with exquisite poems and translations by masterful German poetic translators.

Song: Grammy award-winning mezzo soprano, Virginia Warnken will take us on the next step of our journey, pairing text with melody.

Masterpiece: Having heard the poem and the song it is based upon, we listen to Schubert’s “Trout” Quintet as if for the first time.

Pieces for the evening include the following: Klughardt: Schilflieder (Song of the Reeds) for Viola, Oboe, & Piano; Schubert, Brahms: Selected Songs; Schubert: Trout Quintet
