The Singer and the Song

Sunday, October 6, 2019 | 3:30pm

Renowned for his luminous voice “capable of the most powerful explosions as well as the gentlest covered notes,” (Toronto Star) baritone Russell Braun is joined by pianist Carolyn Maule to perform a lieder and song recital that highlights Dichterliebe (A Poet’s Love), one of Robert Schumann’s most famous song cycles.

Braun rightfully claims his place on the concert, opera and recital stages of the world. Juno Award winner and Officer of the Order of Canada, his intelligent and thoughtful portrayals have captivated audiences at the Metropolitan Opera, Opéra National de Paris, Wiener Staatsoper, the Royal Opera, Covent Garden, the Los Angeles Opera, Teatro alla Scala, and at the Salzburg and Glyndebourne festivals.
