Winterreise – the 7th Greta Kraus Schubertiad | Walter Hall, Toronto
A complete performance of Schubert's last, great song-cycle

date: April 14, 2005

For the first time in our series we presented Schubert’s last song-cycle, in a performance by Gerald Finley and Stephen Ralls which was, for each of them, also the first time.  Their performance had been previewed three days earlier at the Goethe-Institut in New York, where the baritone had just finished a run as Don Giovanni at the Metropolitan Opera.  This was the seventh of our annual Schubertiads named for our beloved mentor and friend, Greta Kraus.
