Program Notes
The recital titled “Condition of Love” explores the multifaceted experiences related to the theme of love, traversing through the stages of finding, being, and losing love. Each piece in this program encapsulates a different dimension of this universal human emotion.

The journey begins with compositions that reflect the excitement and anticipation of finding love, capturing the fluttering hearts and the thrill of new beginnings. As the recital progresses, we delve into the essence of being in love, portraying moments of intimacy, connection, and bliss through evocative melodies and harmonies.

However, love is not always permanent, and the program also delves into the poignant theme of losing love. The latter part of the recital explores the complexities of heartbreak, nostalgia, and resilience in the face of love’s departure. Each piece within this segment conveys a unique perspective on the emotional aftermath of losing a cherished connection.

“Condition of Love” invites listeners on an emotional journey through the various states of the heart, ultimately reflecting on the profound impact that love – in its discovery, presence, and absence – has on our lives. Through music, we celebrate the joy, depth, and vulnerability inherent in this universal human experience.
