Kerrytown Concert House is pleased to welcome KCH favorite, pianist Kevin Bylsma, with highly decorated rising tenor, Fran Daniel Laucerica (Glimmerglass Festival / Virginia Opera) in a song recital celebrating wintry themes. The winter that comes each year brings with it the potential of new memories, new experiences, new faces, new love… However, just as easily as it invites the unknown, a time of dormancy inspires reflection — a reflection of life lived, worlds explored, love gained, love lost. This recital follows a protagonist looking back on memories of winters past: some made in new places, others in familiar places, some in youth, some in adulthood. While this program centers around the song cycle by Benjamin Britten, Winter Words, with text by Thomas Hardy, it also showcases works from the Romantic period through the twenty-first century by Rubinstein, Debussy, Aguirre, Koechlin, Vondrak, and Korngold..
