Love Themes: Kelley O'Connor Sings Lieberson's Neruda Songs

Making her Colorado Symphony Orchestra debut, mezzo-soprano Kelley O'Connor sings Peter Lieberson's Neruda Songs, based on love poems written by Pablo Neruda. Composed for his wife, the sensational mezzo-soprano Lorraine Hunt Lieberson, Peter Lieberson chose O'Connnor as his wife's successor in performing this work. Also on the program, Maestro Kahane conducts Berlioz's Overture to Beatrice and Benedict and "Love Scene" from Romeo and Juliet, as well as Tchaikovsky's Romeo and Juliet Overture.
