<b>Brad Mehldau, piano and Ian Bostridge, tenor</b><br>

Spell-binding jazz pianist Brad Mehldau has always had a heart not only for jazz standards, but also for classical composers like Schumann and Brahms. Mehldau met Ian Bostridge in 2015 when they discovered that even beyond their mutual admiration, they had numerous similar musical affinities. Since that time, Mehldau has written The Folly of Desire, an entire song cycle exploring love and desire. Working closely together, these iconic artists will take the stage to traverse the borders separating musical genres.

This program contains mature content.
