Anna Prohaska was first heard at the Pierre Boulez Saal in the opening concert in March 2017 and last season performed Kurtág’s Kafka Fragments. Now the soprano returns for a song recital. Joined by pianist Julius Drake, she presents works from four centuries as a musical journey through the “Garden of Eve”—a place of both innocence and temptation.
