Fenlon and Fenlon

23It’s that quiet time of year but this week there’s a bit of an unexpected bonus.  Canadian soprano Rachel Fenlon, usually based in Berlin, is giving a somewhat unusual recital at Gallery 345 at 8pm on Friday.  It’s a recital of Schubert songs in which she accompanies herself at the piano.  Rachel is an accomplished pianist and could have chosen a solo career on that instrument rather than singing.  Since there isn’t a Schubert cycle written specifically for female voice she’s curated one for herself and called it Liebesbotschaft. I don’t know if the manner of performance would have been common in Schubert’s day but surely not unheard of.  Anyway, it should be fun.  It’s also a preview of sorts as Rachel plans to tour this program in Europe.
