Hayley-Laufer Duo performance at A Musical Feast

Saturday, May 18, 2019, 8:00 PM - 9:30 PM


Wandrer II: Feelinglessness

The Hayley-Laufer Duo returns with a second concert collecting revolutionary contributions to the 21st-century art song repertoire. Premieres by Colombian composer Camilo Méndez, Venezuelan composer Freddy Flores Ávila, and Canadian composer Anthony Tan explore the outer reaches of the technical and expressive possibilities of the Lied genre. The program also features Jonathan Harvey’s monumental and mesmerizing Nachtlied, alongside newly minted works for soprano and piano by UB composers.

Drawn to the new, the audacious, and the complex, the Hayley-Laufer Duo challenges the boundaries of voice-and-piano composition by commissioning exciting young artists while cultivating a core repertoire of twentieth and twenty-first century masterworks. Their decade-long collaboration has brought them to the USA, Canada, Europe and South America, and traversed centuries of song repertoire with an emphasis on the electrifying music of today.
