Description

SCHUBERT

Winterreise, D. 911



Bay Area audiences were introduced to the velvety-smooth sound and warm, expressive diction of Canadian baritone Gerald Finley in his creation of the role of J. Robert Oppenheimer in John Adams's opera Doctor Atomic, which earned a Grammy in 2012 for Best Opera Recording. Equally captivating performing lead roles in the world's grandest opera houses and singing delicate, moody songs in the most intimate recital halls, Finley has an astoundingly versatile voice backed by an impressive interpretive intellect. His performance of Schubert's masterpiece, the haunting Winterreise cycle, with longtime collaborator, the formidable pianist Julius Drake, promises an artful and stirring balance of emotions: assuredness and frailty, serenity and passion.
