The 2nd Greta Kraus Schubertiad | Glenn Gould Studio
Vocal and instrumental chamber music by Franz Schubert

date: May 24, 2000

Our second Greta Kraus Schubertiad (in loving memory of our great friend and mentor) fielded an excitingly large group of singers and instrumentalists, so that the atmosphere of one of the original Schubertiads was quite successfully recreated.  Instrumental items included one of the larger scale piano-duets, the Violin Sonata D574 and some of the exquisite Moments musicaux for piano solo.  Songs were performed by the distinguished mezzo Catherine Robbin and the brilliant young soprano Carla Huhtanen, who also joined in a gorgeous duet from the opera Fierrabras.  Some male voice partsongs provided striking contrast and the evening was crowned by the Ständchen, D920, in its version for mezzo and male voice chorus.
