Jessie Wright Martin, mezzo soprano

John O’Brien, piano

 

A long-established musical collaboration between Jessie Wright Martin and John O’Brien has taken them to universities and concert halls throughout the American southeast and across the country. They have performed numerous recitals together, including Wolf’s Italienisches Liederbuch, Schumann’s Frauenliebe und Leben, and a program of Australian music they performed at Weill Recital Hall in Carnegie Hall. Their newest project is a program of Scandinavian music performed in the original languages. This exciting recital program features the music of Edvard Grieg (Haugtussa), Peter Heisse (Dvekes Sange) and Gunnar de Frumeri (Hjärtats Sånger). The program will draw on Dr. Martin’s study with scholars and practitioners of vocal music in Denmark, Sweden and Norway and will celebrate the rich musical offerings of Scandinavian music.
