Karin Schaupp, guitar
Umberto Clerici, cello

What better way to describe an emotional journey than with song? Music can say (and hide) more than simple written text. In the final Twilight Notes for the year, be enchanted by the exquisite pairing of guitar and cello as Karin Schaupp and Umberto Clerici voyage through five centuries of song.

This evocative program uses song to travel from the beginning to the end of life and all that comes in between, exploring love, jealousy, family, illness, joys and battles.

From the Italian Renaissance to the present day, from the simple beauty of a lullaby to a Jewish reflection on death, Wayfaring will captivate you with wondrous music.

Twilight has fallen. Exquisite musical discoveries await.
