  • Thomas Meglioranza - Schubert

$25.00

“Sublime is the first word that comes to mind” (New York Times) upon hearing this highly-regarded American baritone. An “immaculate and inventive recitalist” with a “mellifluous voice and sterling diction” (New Yorker), Meglioranza returns to PCMS to perform Schubert’s masterpiece Die schöne Müllerin. A cycle of 20 Lieder composed by Schubert on poems by William Müller, it is a story of unrequited love and is a rite of passage for vocalists specializing in this unique art.

Schubert: Die schöne Müllerin, D. 795
