Im Abendrot (In the Twilight): The Four Last Songs, composed by Richard Strauss

Im Abendrot is the fourth and final song in Strauss's song cycle, The Four Last Songs. Written just before his death, these songs are set to poems written by Herman Hesse, Joseph Karl Benedikt & Freiherr von Eichendorff. They are widely recognized among the most beautiful music ever written for the soprano voice. Vocals by Stacie Eirich, piano by Tom Jesty. Recorded in isolation in 2021, following an online masterclass lead by The Choir of the Earth & Ms. Lucy Cox.

Rings sich die Thäler neigen, Es dunkelt schon die Luft, Zwei Lerchen nur noch steigen Nachträumend in den Duft. Tritt her, und laß sie schwirren, Bald ist es [Schlafenszeit]2, Daß wir uns nicht verirren In dieser Einsamkeit. O weiter stiller Friede! So tief im Abendrot, Wie sind wir wandermüde -- Ist [das]3 etwa der Tod? Authorship by Joseph Karl Benedikt, Freiherr von Eichendorff (1788 - 1857), "Im Abendrot" In the twilight Through adversity and joy We've gone hand in hand; We rest now from our wanderings Upon this quiet land. Around us slope the valleys, The skies grow dark; Two larks alone are just climbing, As if after a dream, into the scented air. Come here and let them whir past, For it will soon be time to rest; We do not wish to get lost In this solitude. O wide, quiet peace, So deep in the red dusk... How weary we are of our travels -- Is this perhaps - Death? -- *** *Text & translation is from: https://www.lieder.net/

"Singing For Ukraine" ~ aby pomalować świat barwami muzyki, nie barwami wojny 💙💛 Projekt stworzony na rzecz Ukraińskiego Chóru, który zrzesza Ukraińców z różnych miast i krajów jak i promuje ukraińską sztukę chóralną. Wspólnie z chórzystami z całego świata zaśpiewaliśmy "Молитва за Україну" - hymn patriotyczny wydany w 1885 r. Tekst napisał Oleksandr Konysky, a muzykę skomponował Mykola Lysenko. Nasze wykonanie Modlitwy jest połączone ze zbiórką funduszy na rzecz Ukraińskiego Chóru. Dzięki projektowi udało się zebrać prawie 6 tys. hrywien! 📝 Krótko o Chórze Ukraińskim 📝 Inicjatorką powstania chóru ukraińskiego jest Олена Слободиська.

Theater News & Reviews

 

"Standout Performance: Stacie Eirich, who holds the richest vocals as Abigail Adams, resulting in a moving performance." 

-Theodore P. Mahne, NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune: Playmakers in Covington Presents 1776 with a twist: The cast is mostly women. June 26, 2019. 

 

"Adams also misses his wife, Abigail (Stacie Eirich), and the two sing a pair of long-distance duets (taken from actual letters between the two) that are among the show’s best moments."

-Ted Lewis, Nola.com|The Advocate: 1776 declares its independence at Playmakers in Covington with a nearly all-female cast, June 7, 2019. 

"Noteworthy: Stacie Eirich, who not only conveys Abigail Adams’ intelligence but also a tender love for her husband John."

-Brian Sands |Ambush Magazine: Trodding the Boards, July 2, 2019. 

"There were several elements of this particular production that I very much enjoyed. First was lead actress Stacie Eirich's (Katherine) hilarious rendition of "I Hate Men." Already a hysterical number, Eirich's goofy antics and overly dramatic spouts of anger had me in a fit of giggles."

-Heidi Scheuerman|Broadway World Review; Slidell Little Theatre Presents Kiss Me Kate, May 12, 2014.

Hände, laßt von allem Tun, Stirn vergiß du alles Denken, Alle meine Sinne nun Wollen sich in Schlummer senken. Und die Seele unbewacht Will in freien Flügen schweben, Um im Zauberkreis der Nacht Tief und tausendfach zu leben. Authorship by Hermann Hesse (1877 - 1962), "Beim Schlafengehen", written 1911. While going to sleep Now that the day has made me so tired, my dearest longings shall be accepted kindly by the starry night like a weary child. Hands, cease your activity, head, forget all of your thoughts; all my senses now will sink into slumber. And my soul, unobserved, will float about on untrammeled wings in the enchanted circle of the night, living a thousandfold more deeply. *** *Text & translation is from: https://www.lieder.net/
