Performance Santa Fe
Camilla Tilling and Emanuel Ax
Jenny Lind, (1820–1887), known as the ‘Swedish Nightingale,’ was the reigning soprano of her day. A truly larger than life figure, Jenny counted among her friends Felix Mendelssohn and P.T. Barnum and garnered the admiration of all who heard her sing, including Hans Christian Andersen and Queen Victoria. Swedish soprano Camilla Tilling revisits her career with collaborative pianist Emanuel Ax, embarking on a touching journey through the lesser known and documented final 30 years of Jenny’s life during which her focus shifted from the world of opera to the art of song and Lieder.
The program will include works by Mendelssohn, Chopin, and R. Schumann
Camilla Tilling and Emanuel Ax are presented through the support of Margaret and Barry Lyerly
