Russell Braun, baritone with Carolyn Maule, piano

October 9-11, 2019

Renowned for his luminous voice “capable of the most powerful explosions as well as the gentlest covered notes” (Toronto Star) baritone Russell Braun rightfully claims his place on the concert, opera and recital stages of the world. His intelligent and thoughtful portrayals of major characters of opera have captivated audiences at the Metropolitan Opera, Opéra National de Paris, Wiener Staatsoper, the Royal Opera, Covent Garden, the Los Angeles Opera, Teatro alla Scala, and at the Salzburg and Glyndebourne festivals.

Much in demand as a vocal accompanist, Canadian pianist Carolyn Maule has worked with such renowned artists as Michael Schade, Tracy Dahl, Monica Whicher, Patricia Racette, Isabel Bayrakdarian, Norine Burgess, Elizabeth Turnbull, and is often heard in recital with her husband, baritone Russell Braun.

For their return to Music in the Morning, Braun and Maule will perform the best-known song cycle of Robert Schumann, “Dichterliebe” A Poets’ Love, and other works.

This concert is generously sponsored by Bill and Karen Dye, in memory of Iris Dye, who loved Music in the Morning so much.
