The Howland Chamber Music Circle presents a unique recital by the young American baritone Thomas Meglioranza singing one of the masterpieces of vocal music Franz Schubert’s song cycle Winterreise (Winter Journey) with pianist Reiko Uchida.
Meglioranza is one of America’s most sought after and unique young singers, displaying a compelling artistry and remarkably versatile voice that is equally at home in repertoire ranging from Monteverdi to Schubert to Babbitt to Gershwin to Rogers and Hammerstein.
Performing solo and chamber music concerts internationally Reiko Uchida is recognized as one of the finest, most versatile pianists today. She has appeared as soloist with the Los Angeles Philharmonic and many other great orchestras, as a chamber musician with famous string quartets such as the Tokyo and Borromeo, as well as in recital partnering Sharon Robinson, Jaime Laredo and others and is a frequent collaborator with Meglioranza. Together they have issued a CD of Winterreise, which has garnered praise from no less than the late Dietrich Fischer Dieskau and many reviewers.
The concert takes place on Sunday, Oct. 5, at 4 p.m. at the Howland Cultural Center, 477 Main St., Beacon, followed by a reception to meet the artists.
Tickets are by subscription to the series or, singly, at $30 (students $10) and can be reserved by calling 845-297-9243 or purchased at the Howland Chamber Music Circle’s web-site howlandmusic.org.
