- Celine Mogielnicki
Beginning on January 11 and running through March 22, the winter concerts are each led by a different top young jazz or classical artist. This year’s series starts with the world premiere of “Strauss & #HerStory,” a concert of the vocal music of composer Richard Strauss as seen through the lens of feminine experience via his wife Pauline, who served as his life-long mentor, muse, and confidant. Performing will be the New York Times¬-lauded soprano Celine Mogielnicki and pianist Renana Gutman.
In this video, Mogielnicki sings Debussy’s immortal “Claire de Lune” accompanied by pianist Martha May:
