LAVC Vocal Recital - Christian Nova / Frank Garvey

LAVC Faculty members Christian Nova (baritone), and Frank Garvey (piano), present a performance of "The Andrée Expedition" by Dominick Argento. See program below (click on "Download Flyer") for details.

On July 11, 1897, three Swedish explorers (August Andrée, Nils Strindberg and Knut Frænkel) set off in a hydrogen balloon to reach the North Pole. After four days, contact with the three men was lost. They were never heard from again. Some thirty-three years later their final camp, bodies, journals, and letters were found. The journals and letters of Andrée and Strindberg were published in 1930, and texts for these songs were taken directly from these sources. Frænkel left no written account behind, but the text assigned to him is partially based on his companion’s writings. This is a true story.
