Baritone Gerald Finley on Schubert's Winterreise
Monday, February 3, 2014
Schubert's last song-cycle Winterreise, written in the final year of the composer's life, is a rite of passage in many singers' careers. And the Canadian baritone Gerald Finley is no exception, the latest in a distinguished lineage to record the work. With pianist Julius Drake, he has made a recording for Hyperion, to be released on March 3. James Jolly spoke to Finley about the work in another Milestones podcast, made in association with EFG International, the private bank for classical music.
