Music of Poulenc and Weill at the National Gallery, Washington DC

Concert of vocal and instrumental works by Poulenc and Weill featuring Jessica Aszodi (Voice), Daniel Schlosberg (piano) and Russell Rolen (Cello).

In a rare performance, two composers known primarily for song, each with a populist streak, are juxtaposed in both vocal and instrumental repertoire. The featured works include excerpts from Kurt Weill’s Seven Deadly Sins and other individual songs, as well as his Cello Sonata and the Intermezzo for Piano, and Francis Poulenc’s Prier pour Paix, "Tel Jour, Telle Nuit," and Les Soirées de Nazelles.
