July 12: Pianist Victoria Kirsch and Friends

Pianist Victoria Kirsch and friends perform Brahms’s: Liebeslieder Walzer, op. 52 and songs by Schubert, Zemlinsky, Korngold, Kálmán, Johann Strauss Jr., and Lehár.

Pianist Victoria Kirsch lives to collaborate. Praised for her innovative programming and strong musical presence, she is committed to stretching the definition of traditional concert presentation. Joined by her fellow “stage animals”—singers, instrumentalists, actors, and dancers—she explores a variety of themes through live performance. As music director-curator-pianist for these programs, Kirsch juxtaposes historical and contemporary musical works, spoken texts, and related visual selections in unusual ways, encouraging audiences to discover the often-surprising connections among different art forms. Her witty, insightful commentary enhances the exciting collaborative performances that make up these musical-theatrical events.
