Autumn, the time of harvest, crisp days, and cool nights, has fired the imaginations of countless artists, but the season and its imagery had a particular resonance for poets and composers of the Romantic era. Evocations of nostalgia, yearning, and its introspection, all central to the Romantic spirit, found their reflection in what Keats called the "season of mists and mellow fruitfulness". Secular choral works of the period provide a rich canvas for the exploration of these themes, and the partsongs of Johannes Brahms and Franz Schubert on this program are among the finest. Morten Lauridsen's settings of poetry by Robert Graves offer a contemporary gloss on these themes. The centerpiece of the program is Brahm's moving Alto Rhapsody, featuring special guests Zoe Band, mezzo-soprano, and Andrew Jonathan Welch, piano. A post-concert reception follows the Friday evening concert.
