LCU will present a concert of two halves; the first portraying the Romantic Era, commencing with
Verdi’s ‘Stabat Mater’
Often described as a mixture of the purity and simplicity of the 16th century verse of Palestrina, with the drama and pathos of Il Trovatore;
Mascagni’s ‘Intermezzo’ [Cavalleria Rusticana]
A delicate, nostalgic, yearning and beautifully structured piece.
Puccini’s ‘Humming Chorus’ [from Madame Butterfly],exquisite and beautiful & one of the most compelling moments in the opera where optimism is shattered by reality
