Recital Includes Works by Ravel, Schubert,Duparc, Turina, R. Strauss, and Berg
Canadian soprano Measha Brueggergosman returns to
Zankel Hall on Thursday, February 17 at 7:30 p.m. with pianist Justus Zeyen
for a program titled Night and Dreams, featuring works by Ravel,
Schubert, Duparc, Turina, R. Strauss, and Berg, among others. The program is
based on Ms. Brueggergosman’s Deutsche Grammophon recording of the same name
with repertoire selected, in her words, for its “soulful depth, variety, and
beauty. We wanted something that was languid, sexy, romantic, different…that
gives me the chance to really let go.” To see a video of this duo performing an
excerpt from the recording, select this link. Ms. Brueggergosman has performed
often at Carnegie Hall since she made her Weill Recital Hall debut in 2004,
returning for a Zankel Hall recital in 2007. Most recently, she performed in
concerts with the Risør Chamber Music Festival at Carnegie Hall in early
December 2010.Measha Brueggergosman is a Grammy Award nominee for her recording of
Wagner’s Wesendonck Lieder with The Cleveland Orchestra and Franz
Welser-Möst on the Deutsche Grammophon label. Other recordings in her catalogue
on Deutsche Grammophon include Surprise (with works by Schoenberg,
Satie, and Bolcom); Night and Dreams; and Beethoven's Ninth Symphony.
For CBC Records, she has released So Much to Tell and Extase. On the
opera stage, Ms. Brueggergosman has performed Elettra in Mozart’s Idomeneo,
Madame Lidoine in Poulenc’s Dialogues des carmélites, Liù in Puccini’s Turandot,
and Sister Rose in Jack Heggie’s Dead Man Walking. Ms. Brueggergosman is
also committed to song recitals and has performed with pianists Leif-Ove
Andsnes, Jean-Yves Thibaudet, Roger Vignoles, and Justus Zeyen at prestigious
venues, including Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, and Wigmore Hall, as well
as at the Edinburgh, Verbier, and Bergen festivals. Ms. Brueggergosman has
appeared with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Boston Symphony Orchestra, New
York Philharmonic, The Cleveland Orchestra, San Francisco Symphony, London
Symphony Orchestra, and Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, among others with
conductors such as Daniel Barenboim, Michael Tilson Thomas, Franz Welser-Möst,
Sir Andrew Davis, and Gustavo Dudamel. Ms. Brueggergosman has been the host of
the European television cultural variety show, Arte Lounge, and
performed the Olympic Hymn at the Opening Ceremonies of the Vancouver 2010
Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.

with Karl Engel and Bernhardt Ebert among others. Since then, Mr. Zeyen has
