CONCERT NOTES •!• OVERVIEW, continued What makes Wagner's music special for him, Morrell says , is Wagner's · lyricism, "the enormous, beautiful, lyric" sustained sound that he demands, and the way at the most dra- , matic moments he pulls back the dynamic of the orchestra so that as a singer you feel as if you are riding on a cushion of sound." The October 3 recital has been very carefully planned. "When you give a recital you take your audience on a journey, so there has to be a method in the way it is put together. There's an act 1, 2 and 3, so to speak." In this recital the singers will be performing with a pianist, not with an orchestra, so that was another consideration in the selection of the repertoire." THREE OF THE BEST On October 2, a day before the Papizewska/Morrell concert, three Canadian opera stars, Catherine Robbin, Richard Margison and Nathan Berg will be fortunate to have an orchestra to accompany them in a recital they are giving at the Glenn Gould Studio, also of Ger- Narelle Martinez and Susan Kutertan man repertoire, arrangements by Schoenberg of music by Gustav Mahler. Going back another day, to the afternoon of October 1, tenor, Jay Lambie, will be giving a solo recital at Calvin Presbyterian Church. 1 The remaining thre·e of the nine recitals take place in the last four days of September, the first being mezzo-soprano, Linda M~guire with pianist, Stephen t t t Member profiles, 2000, continued from page a JUBILATE SINGERS Artistic Director: Brad Ratzlaff Address: Jubilate Singers Trinity-St. Paul's United Church, 427 Bloor St. W.
