Recital: Brett Polegato | Glenn Gould Studio, Toronto
A recital of unusual song repertoire in English, German and French

date: May 12, 2004

One of Canada’s favourite recitalists, Brett Polegato presented a concert of mostly very unfamiliar repertoire  –  the only well-known item in any sense was Fauré’s L’Horizon chimérique.  The other groups by Vaughan Williams, Schumann, Zemlinsky, Rebecca Clarke and Offenbach proved to be rewarding both to perform and to hear.
