Young Artists Recital – February 5, 1999 | Walter Hall, Toronto
Songs and duets for soprano and baritone

date: February 5, 1999

Two talented singers from the University of Toronto’s Opera School presented music in varied styles, beginning with three Purcell duets.  Then followed Fauré’s cycle, one of the greatest in the French repertoire.  Eight of the secular songs from Wolf’s Spanisches Liederbuch were capped by a rare duet from the same composer’s opera (which he had vainly hoped would lead him into a new career in the theatre).  The second half paired the songs of Grieg and Grainger, two original talents who established a warm friendship for barely two years at the end of the former’s life.
