In accordance with government directives, Place des Arts has suspended its activities until further. These measures have been put into effect due to circumstances relating to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. Consequently, the Finley and Thibaudet Revisit Schumann and Ravel concert scheduled on March 20 has been cancelled. Ticket holders will be reimbursed directly.
An exceptional duo takes to the Maison symphonique stage. GRAMMY Award-winning Canadian bass-baritone Gerald Finley, flanked by one of the most esteemed pianists in the world, Jean-Yves Thibaudet from France, combine talents in their performance of magnificent art songs, a genre they both master exquisitely. These two icons of the international music scene offer Schumann’s Dichterliebe (Poet’s Love) – dedicated to the composer’s beloved Clara, whom he had just wed – and Histoires naturelles – revealing Ravel’s humour – alongside works by Schubert, Fauré, Cole Porter and Louis Emanuel.
Schumann, Dichterliebe (Poet’s Love), op. 48
Ravel, Histoires naturelles
