Rare Music in the Rare Book Room: Die Winterreise, featuring tenor Philip van Lidth de Jeude accompanied by Deborah Hollis
Friday, 16 January, 4:00pm, Perkins Library, Biddle Rare Book Room
January's Rare Music program will be an exploration of the use of an original instrument in the performance of Franz Schubert's Die Winterreise. Tenor Philip van Lidth de Jeude will be accompanied by Deborah Hollis on the Muzio Clementi & Co grand piano made in London c.1805-10. The piano is from the Eddy Collection (part of the Duke University Musical Instrument Collections). Van Lidth de Jeude and Hollis will perform portions of the work and discuss how using the early 19th century instrumentit affects both the vocalist and the pianist. The entire work will be performed using a modern piano on Sunday, 18 January, at 8pm in the Nelson Music Room). Together, the Rare Music program and the 18 January full recital will provide listeners a rare opportunity to better understand Schubert's milestone of vocal repertoire through a comparison of the performance techniques employed in both instances by the artists and the uniquely different sounds of original and modern instruments. Co-sponsored by the Libraries and the Duke University Musical Instrument Collections.
