A Winter Schubertiad – January 19, 1992 | Walter Hall, Toronto
Songs and piano music by Franz Schubert

date: January 19, 1992

Following the success of our first Schubertiad in 1989, we undertook songs of a different season as part of our 10th anniversary celebrations. As before, spoken excerpts were taken from Otto Erich Deutsch’s collection of memoirs by Schubert’s friends. At the end of the afternoon, Der Hirt auf dem Felsen gave hope for the future: “Der Frühling will kommen!” Owing to the indisposition of tenor Carl Halvorson, we were indebted to Martin Houtman for undertaking the programme at very short notice. A particular delight of the afternoon was occasioned by our being able to present baritone Gerald Finley for the first time in our Toronto concerts.
