Bass-baritone Gerald Finley is “a master” of the art of song (New York Times), epitomized by his readings of Schubert with collaborator Julius Drake, a pianist known for the “vast palette of colors” (New York Times) he draws from his instrument. The renowned Canadian vocalist once again brings the poet’s touch to Schubert in this compelling recital that spirals out from the German lieder tradition to include Russian art songs by Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff alongside other surprises.
