On February 7, The Celebrity Series of Boston brings one of opera's greatest bass-baritones to the stage of the Jordan Hall for a stunning Liederabend.
Many recognize bass-baritone Gerald Finley for his signature role as Mozart's infamous Don Giovanni, which he has sung to great acclaim in the most prestigious houses around the world, but many also recognize Finley as a champion for contemporary opera. Finley has sung in numerous world premieres, most notably John Adams' "Doctor Atomic" and Mark Anthony Turnage's "Anna Nicole," and participated in revival productions, such as Adams' "Nixon in China." Of late Finley has further diversified his operatic repertoire with a shift into Wagner.
Even with such an illustrious career on the opera stage, Finley has maintained an equally rich concert repertoire. During 2013, Finley's concert performances have featured songs by Shostakovitch, Lieberman's "Songs of Love and Sorrow," Mahler's "Wunderhorn" Lieder, and many other selections. Finley and pianist Julius Drank's upcoming concert with the Celebrity Series of Boston will feature one of the most famous and beloved song cycles, Schubert's "Winterreise." In March 2014, "Winterreise" will supplement Finley's already prolific discography.
Tickets to this one-night-only event can be purchased through the Celebrity Series of Boston.
