Barbara Hannigan has made a name for herself as a muse and collaborator with a number of legendary composers, creating roles on leading opera stages around the world by adding a kind of virtuosity that contemporary music has rarely seen before. The soprano comes to the Board of Officers Room to make her U.S. recital debut with programs that showcase her versatility and superb musicianship. She opens her residency with an artfully curated look at the Second Viennese School, where new musical language was developed through the extraordinary collaboration between composers, painters, writers, and other artists in the city’s salons and cafes at the turn of the century. She then looks to Paris to explore the work of Erik Satie, from his dramatic music written for ballet to his magnum opus Socrate, in a unique program performed with renowned Satie interpreter Reinbert de Leeuw.
