About the Artists
John Moore is a frequent performer in both Europe and the United States and is garnering praise for his energetic performances and burnished baritone in both operatic and concert repertoire. He is “one of America’s rising baritone stars” (William Burnett, Opera Warhorses.com).
Polish-American pianist Adam Golka,“an accomplished pianist…with vibrant playing” (the New York Times), first performed all of Beethoven's Piano Sonatas when he was 18 years-old, and has performed the entire cycle of Beethoven's 32 Sonatas at the Bach Festival Society of Winter Park (Florida) and at Saint Thomas Church Fifth Avenue (NYC.) As a concerto soloist, he has appeared with dozens of orchestras nationally and internationally. Ringwood Friends of Music audiences remember Adam Golka’s thrilling virtual solo performance for us in 2021.
At this evening performance, John Moore and Adam Golka will transport you to another time and place - in a performance of the compelling Wintereisse (Winter Journey), a masterpiece by Schubert. With words by the German poet Wilhelm Müller, the song cycle tells the story of a heart-broken young man who has lost his beloved to another. Memories, dreams, sorrows - this is a perfect marriage of music and poetry, and Golka and Moore will convey depths of emotion in a way that will leave you breathless!
