Songs without Words
Timeless Melodies and Inspired Improvisations
With a musical approach that’s “distinctly sensual…pliant, warm, and sweet” (New York Times), baroque oboist Debra Nagy expands the repertoire for her instrument with timeless songs whose emotionally-charged melodies stir the passions and inspire improvisation with echoes of jazz. This program of original arrangements and improvisations breathes new life into torch songs spanning the 17th to 20th Centuries. Music by Michel Lambert, Sebastian Le Camus, Nina Simone, and more.
