Independent Opera Company is proud to present as part of their 2021 season IOC Stars in Concert, a series of six beautifully produced concerts that showcase some of the great soloists who have appeared in IOC productions over the years.
In this, the fifth concert in this exciting new series, IOC presents a stunning selection of songs and preludes by Sergei Rachmaninov showcasing the talents of baritone Aaron Ball, soprano Brooke Iva Lohman, tenor Luke Norvell, and pianist Galina Barskaya, all whom audiences have enjoyed as featured soloists in prior installments of the IOC Stars in Concert series. These exciting artists will be joined by the wonderful mezzo-soprano and IOC veteran Alexis Welsey who sang in IOC's very first production (Eugene Onegin, 2012) and has appeared regularly on the IOC stage since.
This exciting concert premieres with a livestream on Sunday, April 25 at 2:00pm (PST). The concert will remain on-demand for ticket holders for two weeks after the livestream until May 9 at 2:00pm.
Sergey Rachmaninov was the last great figure of the Russian Romanticism tradition and a leading piano virtuoso of his time. Rachmaninov's music is well known and admired for its lush melodies and harmonies, as well as emotional intensity and power.
Just like all of Rachmaninov’s music, his vocal works reflect on a wide range of emotions. They explore many attributes of human love: devotion, passion, tenderness, betrayal and loss, to name just a few. Also, some of the works are dedicated to the beauty of nature ("Lilacs") and the arts ("Music"). Rachmaninov was a deeply spiritual and religious person, as is reflected so well in his great choral works. While this program doesn't showcase his works dedicated to scripture, the spiritual and mysterious aspects of his compositions are undeniably present throughout.
The program will also include two preludes for solo piano performed by IOC founding artistic director & CEO, Galina Barskaya, who also serves as pianist and music director for the entire IOC Stars in Concert series.
This all-Rachmaninoff program is performed in the original Russian language and includes English-language translations in closed caption.
