The Program

A Medley of Viennese Waltzes

Joseph Lanner, the father of the Viennese waltz, (1801–1843)

Johann Strauss, the king of the Viennese waltz, (1825–1899)

Vilja-Lied from The Merry Widow                                Franz Lehár (1870–1948)

A hunter sees a wood-maiden and longs for her. The wood-maiden beguiles the hunter into her cave, and he is loved and kissed more than any other earthly crea­ture. Then, she van­ishes, and the hunter is left alone to pine for her.

Czardas                 Vittorio Monti (1868–1922)

Meine Lippen, sie küssen so heiss from Giuditta     Franz Lehár (1870–1948)

My lips, they give so fiery a kiss; my limbs, they are supple and white; it is written for me in the stars: “Thou shalt kiss! Thou shalt love!” My feet, they glide and float; my eyes, they lure and glow, And I dance as if entranced, because I know, my lips, they give so fiery a kiss.

Midnight Bells                                Richard Heuberger (1850–1914) trans. F. Kreisler

Wien, du Stadt meiner Träume                                Rudolf Sieczynski (1879–1952)

Vienna, you alone are the city of my dreams.

Intermission

Air                                                                      Carl Goldmark (1830–1915)

Liebesleid                                                           Fritz Kreisler (1875–1962)

   Schön Rosmarin

   Marche minia­ture viennois

Cabaret Songs from One Touch of Venus                    Kurt Weill (1900–1950)

    Foolish Heart

    Speak Low

    That’s Him

    I’m a Stranger Here Myself

Auld Lang Syne                                                                   Scottish Melody

Should old acquain­tance be forgot, and never brought to mind?

Should old acquain­tance be forgot, and old lang syne?

CHORUS:

For auld lang syne, my dear, for auld lang syne,

we’ll take a cup of kind­ness yet, for auld lang syne.

A Vienna New Year’s Concert

The Crowell will waltz us into the new year on Saturday, January 4 at 4 PM with “A Vienna New Year’s” Concert with a return engage­ment of the Diva and the Fiddler– Diana Jacklin, soprano, Hartmut Ometzburger, violin and pianist Thomas Enman–performing Viennese waltzes, operetta and cabaret.

World-class musi­cians Diana Jacklin and Hartmut Ometzberger per­form inter­na­tion­ally to crit­ical acclaim. As the only voice and violin duo in the world, TIME OUT (NYC) describes Diana Jacklin and Hartmut Ometzberger’s col­lab­o­ra­tion as “an eclectic duo”.

Video clips of their past per­for­mances can be seen at the Crowell Chapel website.

Benefit per­for­mances to pre­serve the Chapel: The con­cert venue, Crowell Memorial Chapel, was built in 1903 and is itself a musical instru­ment. Its nat­u­rally vibrant acoustics and classic inte­rior have made it a pop­ular venue for musical per­for­mances, appre­ci­ated by both artists and patrons. Restored in 2011 by Community Preservation Act and Town funds, these ben­efit per­for­mances are part of the con­tin­uing preser­va­tion effort. The Crowell Chapel Concert Series is spon­sored by the Historic Manchester Trust, a not-for-profit Massachusetts 180 Corporation with Federal 501c3 status. If you would like to be a patron of this pro­gram to bring music to Manchester and con­serve the Chapel, please con­tact Woody Kelly, director of the Historic Manchester Trust at 617–755-9299.
