The Bessel-Quartet, in concert in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, performs the German premier of Jenni Brandon’s Love Songs for Soprano and Oboe IV & VII.  Love Songs are performed by Soprano Margaretha Bessel (www.MargarethaBessel.de) and Oboist Kevin Chavez. Jenni’s “Love Songs” share the stage with the music of Schumann, Rossini, Gershwin, and Kern.

soprano and oboe sheet music

The texts – translations of Native American words – Tell a story of the Native American woman – a story that she might tell to her child while she rocked the child to sleep. It is a story that can be universally understood, but points to the strength of not only the Native American woman, but to the strength of all women to persevere, to raise children and to keep community strong against all odds. It is a “love song” in that it goes beyond just romantic love, but tells of love for a child and love of the land.

The following is a recording of the performance, Frankfurt am Main, by Margaret Bessel and Kevin Chavez: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qMR7HWIZbRo
