Lawrence Brownlee & Michael Spyres Sing Rossini, at 92Y; Myra Huang, Piano

Wednesday October 27, 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm


“Vocal fireworks”


Two of the great bel canto tenors of our time join for an all-Rossini program that promises vocal pyrotechnics and thrills. Performing music featured on their critically acclaimed recent recording Amici E Rivali (Friends and Rivals), the program, an homage to the trailblazing opera stars of Rossini’s own time, begins with a raucous, 6-hand piano arrangement of the overture from the irresistible Il barbiere di Siviglia and continues with a suite of dramatic arias and duets from the opera, including the famed “Largo al factotum.” Then, three gorgeous vocal rarities precede a piano transcription of the famous William Tell overture, and Brownlee and Spyres conclude the program with a trio of delightful arias and duets from Rossini’s famed Otello. Accompanied by the fine pianist Myra Huang, expect technical mastery, vocal splendor and a concert of sheer joy!
