BY RENÉE FLEMING, MEASHA BRUEGGERGOSMAN,
AND EDWARD PARKS AMONG VOCAL HIGHLIGHTS
THIS WINTER AT CARNEGIE HALL
This January and February, acclaimed classical singers will
be presented in recital by Carnegie Hall on each of its three concert stages.
World renowned American soprano, Renée Fleming, performs in recital with
pianist Hartmut Höll on Tuesday, January 11 at 8:00 p.m. in Stern
Auditorium/Perelman Stage. Highlights of her program include songs from The
Book of Hours: Love Poems to God by Brad Mehldau, Carnegie Hall’s Richard
and Barbara Debs Composer’s Chair holder for the 2010-2011 season. A Carnegie
Hall commission from 2005, Mr. Mehldau wrote the piece for Ms. Fleming, and the
composer and soprano performed the world premiere of the work in Zankel Hall.
Also on Ms. Fleming’s program are works by Schoenberg, Zemlinsky, Korngold, and
Richard Strauss. Ms. Fleming last performed in recital at Carnegie Hall in
2005, also with Hartmut Höll.
On Friday, February 11 at 7:30 p.m., American baritone Edward Parks, a
past Marilyn Horne Foundation vocalist, and pianist Ken Noda perform
Schubert’s complete Winterreise song cycle in Weill Recital Hall. Winterreise
is the second of Schubert's two great song cycles on Wilhelm Müller's poems,
the earlier being Die schöne Müllerin. About this composer and work, Mr.
Parks said “I feel a very special connection to Schubert and Winterreise. I am
singing it because I cannot see myself singing anything else. Ken Noda told me
once that sometimes music and composers choose us…With this piece, I believe
that to be true.” The New York Times declared that Mr. Parks has “a
robust, earthy voice.” This concert is part of the Marilyn Horne legacy at
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 Nights
and Dreams featuring works by Mozart, Schubert, Duparc, Turina, Richard
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, click

Music Festival’s residency at Carnegie Hall in early December 2010.
