Received this recently from Kathy Brown a.k.a. Ermintrude Blenkinsop:
THE LIEDER SOCIETY OF WA
It occurred to me the other day that anybody interested in poetry might well be interested in the Lieder Society. All songs, whether French chansons, English "art" song (so-called), ones in Italian or Spanish as well as specifically German Lieder are, of course based on poems, so that each singer plus piano is indeed a "duo"; one is nothing without the other.
I've been going to these recitals for many years (two seasons a year - Autumn and Spring) and they are great, with different and usually excellent performers, so I wondered if you thought it a good idea if I asked the Lieder Soc. Secretary to pass on info. about the recitals, for you to pass on to your e-mail list people? Not to be pushy, just a genuine desire to share enjoyment of "poetry set to music".
