Tune in Sunday, May 23, 2021 at 2PM Eastern to National Philharmonic's FREE broadcast performance of Amore, Henry's new love duet for soprano, baritone, and orchestra. Amore kicks off NatPhil’s livestream concert, Amore & Mozart, which will be simulcast on WETA, Washington, DC's leading public broadcasting station.
The full title of the work – Amore e 'l cor gentil sono una cosa – translates to “Love and the gentle heart are one and the same,” and Henry wrote it for his dear friends Jennifer and Eddie’s nuptials in Florence, Italy. (What better text could he set than a love sonnet in Italian by revered Florentine poet Dante Alighieri?)
Led by Maestro Piotr Gajewski, the concert features the composer's favorite operatic duo of Met soprano Danielle Talamantes and bass-baritone Kerry Wilkerson – who sang it at the wedding!
This performance promises to be a superlative showcase of Danielle and Kerry’s breathtaking vocal talent and NatPhil’s beautifully nuanced and evocative sound.
As part of NatPhil’s virtual 2020-21 season, it will come to your home at no charge from the Music Center at Strathmore in North Bethesda, Maryland.
Whether you’re tuning in solo or having a watch party with friends, dressed in your finest attire for Instagram worthy pictures or lounging in your pajamas with a hot latte, join Henry May 23rd at 2:00 PM Eastern as NatPhil brings you Amore.
Enjoy the show!
