About this composer and work, Mr.Parks said “I feel a very special connection to Schubert and Winterreise. I amsinging it because I cannot see myself singing anything else. Ken Noda told meonce that sometimes music and composers choose us…With this piece, I believethat to be true.” The New York Times declared that Mr. Parks has “arobust, earthy voice.” This concert is part of the Marilyn Horne legacy atCarnegie Hall.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 Nightsand Dreams featuring works by Mozart, Schubert, Duparc, Turina, RichardStrauss, and Berg, among others. The program is based on Ms. Brueggergosman’sDeutsche Grammophon recording of the same name with repertoire selected, in herwords, for its “soulful depth, variety, and beauty. We wanted something thatwas languid, sexy, romantic, different…that gives me the chance to really letgo.” To see a video of this duo performing an excerpt from the recording, clickhere.
