December concert

French hornist Arlene Shiplett and pianist Jaya Hoy will perform Allemande by Henry Purcell, a movement from a concerto for horn in D major (attributed to Franz Joseph Haydn but also thought to have actually been penned by Anton Rosetti), and an arrangement for horn of César Cui’s Perpetuum Mobile. Following that, Garry and Kathleen Gable will perform a beloved three-song cycle of Lieder set to poetry of Michelangelo Buonarroti by Austrian, Hugo Wolf, and then individual songs of Tom Lehrer, Cecil Dougherty and Vincent Youmans.
