Why See Classical Spectres?

phantoms and fantasy

Enter the world of the macabre and supernatural with the latest concert from Ars Lyrica. Part of their Fables and Follies series, Classical Spectres explores the 18th and 19th-century fascination with the curious, eerie and horrifying, evident in our near ancestors' wide appetite for gothic fiction, art, and music. In a specially curated program, Ars Lyrica borrows pieces from the opera house by Bach and Beethoven, that away from theatrical settings take on a fantastical life of their own.


Johann Christoph Friedrich Bach, Pygmalion
Jean-Marie LeClair, Violin Concerto in D Minor, Op. 7/1
Ludwig van Beethoven, "Ghost" Trio in D Major, Op. 70/1
Ludwig van Beethoven, An die ferne geliebte
