Friends of Chamber Music – Gerald Finley and Julius Drake
February 1 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm PST
Grammy-award winning Canadian bass-baritone Gerald Finley is a leading singer and dramatic interpreter of his generation. In this not- to-be-missed recital he joins pianist Julius Drake who has an international reputation as one of the finest instrumentalists in his field.
“Mr. Finley has long been recognized as a recitalist of rare versatility, a concert artist of the first rank and an opera singer of distinction in a broad repertory.” The New York Times
“Drake made the piano part sound positively incandescent. For my money, this inspired accompanist is now the best in the business.” New York Magazine
A Lieder program featuring works by Franz Schubert, Hugo Wolf, and Peter Lieberson, as well as selected Shakespeare settings by Cole Porter, Korngold, and others.
