Winterreise, D. 911 (1827) by Franz Schubert
“It is impossible to imagine Randall Scarlata singing a mechanical or thoughtless phrase. Scarlata searches out the Platonic essence of what he plans to sing and then uses every attribute at his disposal to create the most appropriate and fully dimensional realization possible” Washington Post
Baritone Randall Scarlata has been praised by the New York Times as “an intelligent and communicative singer” with a “compelling desire to bring texts to life.” He has also been acclaimed for his “extraordinary vocal range and color palette” and “ability to traverse so many different singing styles” (MusicWeb International). The Daily Telegraph (London) adds “Randall Scarlata sings with the assurance of one with nothing to prove.”
Jeremy Denk is one of America’s foremost pianists. Winner of a MacArthur “Genius” Fellowship, and the Avery Fisher Prize, Denk was recently elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. Denk returns frequently to Carnegie Hall and in recent seasons has appeared with the Chicago Symphony, New York Philharmonic, Los Angeles Philharmonic, San Francisco Symphony, and Cleveland Orchestra, as well as on tour with Academy of St Martin in the Fields, and at the Royal Albert Hall as part of the BBC Proms.
