About This Event

Barbara Hannigan, who received the Order of Canada in June 2016, is known worldwide as a soprano of vital expressive force directed by exceptional technique. Blessed with a voice at once pure and hot, she also possesses an exciting stage presence, whether in opera or on the concert platform. In her Koerner Hall debut with pianist Reinbert de Leeuw, she will perform an artfully curated look at the Second Viennese School, where new musical language was developed through the extraordinary collaboration between composers, painters, writers, and other artists in the salons and cafes of Vienna at the turn of the century. The program features works by Alban Berg, Anton Webern, Alma Mahler, and Hugo Wolf.
