When Louise burned her lover's letters

burning love lettersThis is the title of one of Mozart's lieder, a genre which became very fashionable in the end of the 18th century. During this period Haydn composed some three dozen lieder with keyboard accompaniment and Mozart a similar quantity. Beethoven's wrote nearly as many as Haydn and Mozart together, and masterfully arranged 168 folk songs. Our program presents some of those gems and Haydn keyboard trio Hoboken XV:15. With Karin Shifrin (soprano), Moshe Aron Epstein (on an original classical flute built in 1780), Myrna Herzog (cello) and Marina Minkin (harpsichord, fortepiano).
