On the music
Delve into the beauty and emotion of Franz Schubert’s Winterreise, performed by the Toronto Mendelssohn Singers, renowned Canadian baritone Brett Polegato, and Juno Award-winning pianist Philip Chiu. Presented in a new adaptation for choir, baritone, and piano, this stunning vocal masterpiece recounts the story of a wanderer’s heartbreak and despair as they travel through a frozen world. The concert also features works by Fanny Hensel, one of the first published female composers, and Clara Schumann, widely regarded as one of the most significant composers and pianists of the Romantic era. Under the direction of Jean-Sébastien Vallée, the TMSingers bring their signature artistry to some of the most beautiful pages of vocal repertoire.
