PORTLAND OPERA RESIDENT ARTIST RECITAL
BARITONE ALEXANDER ELLIOTTAND PIANIST NICHOLAS FOX
Tuesday, November 5, 2013, 7:00pm | Whitsell Auditorium, Portland Art Museum
(Portland, Ore) — Portland Opera presents baritone ALEXANDER ELLIOTT in his first recital as a Portland Opera Resident Artist on November 5, 2013 at Portland Art Museum’s Whitsell Auditorium. This is the second recital this season in a free series that Oregon Arts Watch called “cause for optimism about classical music’s future.” Mr. Elliott will collaborate with Assistant Conductor and Chorus Master NICHOLAS FOX to present a program that explores the wide range of baritone art song repertoire. Selections will include Stefano Donaudy’s charming late-19th-century songs that emulate the bel canto style and the song cycle “Another Reason Why I Don't Keep a Gun in the House“ by American composer Tom Cipullo, who was called "…one of New York's favorite song composers…" by The New Yorker. The program also includes songs by Maurice Ravel, Ernst Korngold, Samuel Barber, Paul Bowles, and Benjamin Britten.
