Heidi Melton Wesendonck: A Short-Term Farewell

On October 20, 2009 LIEDER ALIVE! presents a benefit recital, featuring Heidi Melton (soprano), Eleazar Rodriguez (tenor), and John Parr (piano). It will be at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music Concert Hall, at 8:00pm.

Eleazar, an elegant lyric tenor from the current crop of Merolini, will offer Beethoven’s Adelaide, and Schumann’s Dichterliebe in the first half. And, Heidi will offer three Brahm’s lied, AND the Wesendonck Lieder in the second half. This is Heidi’s last scheduled public performance in the Bay Area, before she jets off to New York, and then Berlin. I believe she is covering the Trovatore Leonora at SFO, so only an indisposition by Sondra Radvanovsky (and the understudy) would give us her Leonora so soon.
