(MINNEAPOLIS; June 13, 2019) – This July, Cantus presents the third installment of its special chamber music experience with Unrequited at four noteworthy Twin Cities venues – Landmark Center in St. Paul (July 16) and American Swedish Institute (July 17), The Museum of Russian Art (July 18) and Westminster Hall (July 19) in Minneapolis. These concerts have proved to be popular summer fare with venues boasting sell-out or near sell-out events.
Unrequited explores the risks – as well as the dizzying highs – embedded in feeling passionately about someone. In these intimate concerts, Cantus pairs distinctive solos and duets with the rich, full-ensemble texture to offer nuanced perspectives of love. Anchored by Robert Schumann’s sublime song cycle, Dichterliebe (Op. 48), the program also features composers Feist, Joni Mitchell and Stephen Sondheim, among others.
Tickets ($32 for adults/$10 for children) can be purchased online at cantussings.org or by calling 612-435-0055.
