Young Artists Recital – December 4, 1998 | Walter Hall, Toronto
Two major song-cycles, preceded by cantata movements and followed by folksong settings

date: December 4, 1998

This was the first in our long-running series of Young Artists Recitals (presented in collaboration with the Faculty of Music, University of Toronto, and renamed the Discovery Series in 2006) which continued up until February 2011.  Two talented singers from the University of Toronto’s vocal program each presented a major song-cycle, the baritone’s by Schumann and the soprano’s by Debussy, each from the early part of its composer’s career but a major work nonetheless.  The concert began with two duets from Bach’s Wachet auf! (it was the season of Advent) and concluded with a varied group of folksong settings, including two by Canadian composers.
