ABOUT ARIAS AND BARCAROLLES

“You know, I liked that last piece you played; it's got a theme. I like music with a theme, not all them arias and barcarolles.”
- Dwight D. Eisenhower, speaking to Leonard Bernstein after a White House concert in 1960



Leonard Bernstein was so taken by President Eisenhower’s remark that 30 years later, he produced a song-cycle called "Arias and Barcarolles," with a theme Bernstein described as “The politics of love.”

Similarly inspired, Cathy Fuller lends her voice to the weekend with a program devoted to an exploration of song - and the art of the vocal recital. Perhaps with a Barcarolle or two!
