R. Strauss’s Four Last Songs in Toronto

January 1st, 2013

“[Marco Parisotto] also didn’t hold back with the Strauss Lieder, pushing Meade to blow our hair backwards with her great, big voice. … She displayed all the ingredients of a great operatic singer, including a solid grasp of the dramatic arc of each piece. Although the Strauss songs are operatic in their sweep, the audience was given the opportunity to jump roaring to its feet with a Verdi encore: ‘Pace, pace…’ from La forza del destino.”
