March 19, 2021? This picture is of the people performing, Lise Davidsen and James Baillieu, but the venue shown is wrong. This recital is in London on a different date. I am discussing the Lieder recital streamed from London to Washington, DC.
I feel a certain musical kinship to Lise, not for her glorious Wagner and Strauss operatic triumphs, but more for her Bach, Brahms, Schumann and Strauss Lieder. When I started at IU, I told the professors that I had performed the alto solos for all the major works of Bach. They responded, "No you haven't." So I said, "Matthew Passion, B minor mass, Magnificat, St John Passion, Christmas Oratorio. What does that leave?" I love it that Lise has sung some of the same music. I once did a whole recital of Lieder by Brahms so it is nice to see a couple of them here.
