A one-time, free introduction to Lieder. What is German Lieder? Lieder is literally the German word for songs, though the term is usually used in reference to German songs of the Romantic Period (19th Century) written for voice and piano. What makes Lieder unique is that the piano does more than merely accompany; it has an equal relationship with the voice and shares in the storytelling of the song. Join Jenny Matteucci and Daniel Lockert as they delve deep into an amazing tradition of songwriting, and help you appreciate this often-misunderstood art form. They will play for you some of the greatest Lieder singers of our time, and they’ll perform also.
