The 1st Greta Kraus Schubertiad | Glenn Gould Studio, Toront
Songs and a piano-duet by Franz Schubert

date: June 11, 1999

Greta Kraus (1907-98) was one of the first and greatest mentors of the Aldeburgh Connection and a firm friend.  The harpsichordist, pianist and coach contributed significantly to our preparations for Schubert’s bicentenary in January 1997, but was too ill to attend the concerts.  Just over a year later, she passed away.  This present concert inaugurated a regular series of Schubertiads in her honour; the performers included, as well as the Artistic Directors, three others who were devoted students of hers:  Monica Whicher, Russell Braun and Carolyn Maule.  Benjamin Butterfield, who sang Die schöne Müllerin for us, was also a fervent disciple of Mme Kraus.
