Recital: Brett Polegato – October 21, 1996 | Glenn Gould Studio, Toronto
Great song-cycles in English, German and French

date: October 21, 1996

In his first solo recital for the Aldeburgh Connection, Brett Polegato presented four of his favourite cycles: Schumann’s Op.39, Ravel’s Histoires naturelles, Butterworth’s Shropshire Lad and Britten’s Tit for Tat. They provided a splendid panorama of his expressive abilities and were followed, by way of conclusion, by three of Britten’s rarely-heard arrangements of French folksongs. A nostalgic encore by Quilter closed the evening.
