Description

Julie Nesrallah, mezzo-soprano
Caroline Leonardelli, harp
Recording Release

Sunday October 21, 2018 at 2 pm
Tickets: $25/$10 (Cash only at the door)

Renowned mezzo soprano and CBC Radio host Julie Nesrallah and JUNO Award nominated harpist Caroline Léonardelli have a new program of Italian Art Songs. The recording has just been released and this is the premiere performance in Toronto. The program features eight different composers with Verdi, Puccini, and Respighi writing their songs as a way to launch their career operatic and symphonic careers while Tosti and Leoncavallo forged a career of song composition. The songs range from very well known to the obscure with subjects ranging from love, romance and joy to betrayal, scorn and death. Art songs are written for piano. These songs have been arranged for harp. Caroline completed most of the arrangements herself and a number are in their premiere on the instrument.

Caroline’s last solo harp recording Impressions de France has been selected by Apple music editors to be on their top playlist for the instrument and her previous recording El Dorado received a JUNO Award nomination for Classical Album of the Year Solo or Small Ensemble.

Julie and Caroline toured their previous programs Panache and Impressions de France at major festivals and series throughout Canada and are looking forward to performances of these Italian songs.
