About the event
[KALLOS in Residence]
This concert is presented through the New Haven Lawn Club Preservation Trust (501(c)(3)). In partnership with the Trust, Kallos is pleased to make the club its new home in their concert series.
[SONGS WITHOUT WORDS]
In celebrating the 225th anniversary of Franz Schubert, one of the greatest of lieder composers, Kallos presents a program of songs without words. While words efficiently convey message and information, instrumental music breathes in the realm of nonverbal communication. Exploring the nuances of timbres and colors created by our wonderful string quartet, this music speaks to the soul through lyricism, drama, and above all, a reverence for the most natural and beautiful tool of musical expression, the vocality of sound.
