The centerpiece of the 2021 LCCMF is this 75-minute Music Theater co-commission (in collaboration with the festivals of Chamber Music Northwest, Santa Fe, La Jolla, and the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center) about a celebrated concert singer who is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. She and her pianist husband come to an elevated understanding of their love through their music. The production features Grammy-winning soprano Jennifer Johnson Cano and one of the world’s leading baritones, Kelly Markgraf, who has been praised by the New York Times for his “vocally and physically compelling interpretations.”
