Winterreise – the 11th Greta Kraus Schubertiad | Glenn Gould Studio, Toronto
A complete performance of Schubert's last, great song-cycle

date: March 25, 2009

Brett Polegato, one of Canada’s finest baritones, active on the concert and operatic stages and a frequent performer with the Aldeburgh Connection, performed for the first time Schubert’s Winterreise, one of the earliest song-cycles, but also one of the greatest.  This was the eleventh in a series of annnual Schubertiads named for our beloved mentor and friend, Greta Kraus.
