Masterworks 4: Honey and Rue
All great composers push past the traditional boundaries, sweeping us along with them. Wagner wrote a tender pastoral, an intimate gift for his wife; Ravel coloured the familiar delights of childhood with a gentle intimation of melancholy. In Honey and Rue, André Previn and Nobel Laureate Toni Morrison created a contemporary song cycle of desire, sacrifice, and resolution that speaks to us all. The NSO welcomes coloratura soprano, Claire de Sévigné, who adds her expressive voice to this unforgettable work.
