Concert, “Neue Frauenliebe und -leben” – Pomona College

October 21, 2022 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm


Redefining Woman’s Life and Love features Assistant Professor and soprano Melissa Givens and pianist Eugenia Cheng in Robert Schumann’s Frauenlieben und – leben with a newly-created text by Dr. Cheng, written from a contemporary woman’s perspective—a recasting from the original text written by Adelbert von Chamisso in 1830 describing the course of a woman’s love for her man.

The performers bringing this work to life are Melissa Givens known for thrilling audiences and critics alike and her expressiveness and elegance on the stage. She’s hailed as a singer whose music making is “consistently rewarding” and “a pleasure to hear,” and Eugenia Cheng, a pianist, mathematician, and founder of the Liederstube who holds three degrees from the University of Cambridge and as a pianist has performed from Seattle’s Town Hall to the Dublin National Concert Hall.

The concert is co-sponsored by the Departments of Music and Mathematics and Statistics at Pomona College.
