On Sunday, April 13 at 3:30 p.m. in Björling Recital Hall, music education major and Björling Scholar Madeline Cacciatore will fill the recital hall with music as she presents her senior voice recital accompanied by Michael Asmus on harpsichord and piano. Madeline’s recital is free and open to the public.
Her choices of music for the performance cover a wide variety of styles and time periods. With Michael Asmus ’13 on harpsichord and Rebecca Ihnen on oboe, Cacciatore will open the concert with “Quia Respexit from Magnificat” by Johann Sebastian Bach. She will then perform her favorite selections, “O del mio amato ben” and “Vorrei poterti odiare” by Stefano Donaudy. After that she will sing Charles Gounod’s “Faites-lui mes aveux.”
The remainder of her selections for the recital were written in the 20th century. She will do three works by John Duke: “Love and Friendship,” “I Carry Your Heart,” and “I Can’t be Talkin’ of Love.” Fellow mezzo-soprano and senior Alecia Woods will join Cacciatore for a bit of Leonard Bernstein’s music from West Side Story, “A Boy Like That” and “I Have a Love.” Next Cacciatore will take the stage to present Aaron Copland’s “Laurie’s Song” from The Tender Land with lyrics created by Horace Everett. To wrap up her recital, she will perform ABBA’s “Thank You for the Music,” composed by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus. The musical repertoire provided in this recital show both Cacciatore’s musicality and a great range of works for the audience to enjoy.
Madeline Cacciatore is a student of Dr. Patricia Snapp of the Gustavus Department of Music. Her recital will begin at 3:30 p.m. in Björling Recital Hall on Sunday, April 13. The public can attend her recital for free.
