Mahler: Selections from Das Knaben Wunderhorn and Rückert-Lieder
Schubert: Selected songs by various poets
Revered German singer Christoph Prégardien, rarely heard in Toronto but of whom the New York Times has written, “His lyric tenor voice had a youthful glow, yet he sang with plaintive beauty and piercing insight,” appears in recital with pianist Julius Drake. Precise vocal control, clear diction, intelligent musicality and an ability to get to the heart of everything he sings ensures Christoph Prégardien’s place among the world’s foremost lyric tenors. Renowned pianist Julius Drake is widely regarded as one of the finest instrumentalists in his field. In addition to regularly appearing in recitals around the world and performing at international chamber music festivals, he has released several award-winning recordings. Their recital will feature selections from Mahler’s Das Knaben Wuderhorn and a selection of Schubert songs.
