Recital: Nathalie Paulin / Anita Krause | Glenn Gould Studio, Toronto
Songs and duets from two of our most distinguished performers

date: April 9, 2008

Canadian, French and German songs and duets made a particularly satisfying programme.  Each singer acquitted herself superbly in Fleming and Brahms (Krause), and Poulenc and Debussy (Paulin), showing each singer’s easy versatility.  This was further exhibited in the surprising encore by Irving Berlin.
