Measha Brueggergosman

Details

“Everything she sings is radiated by an instinctive musicality, breadth of phrasing and generosity of spirit: here is someone evidently singing for love not money and she has the gift of making the music glow.” – The Telegraph (UK)

Soprano Measha Brueggergosman hasn’t followed the traditional career path of an opera star, pursuing a stellar stage career while multitasking as a recitalist, recording artist and author. Her musical interests are just as diverse: show-tunes, lieder, new music and mainstays of the operatic stage. She’s also a vocal champion of Canadian literature and music education. Her voice is as versatile, voluptuous and expansive as her repertoire, which ranges here from the shimmering orientalist fantasy of Ravel’s portrait the legendary storyteller, Montsalvatge’s sultry songs to the sly cabaret numbers of William Bolcom and Francis Poulenc. Measha is joined by Australia’s Ian Munro, the ideally simpatico collaborator for this evening of classical razzle-dazzle.

From Melbourne Recital Centre’s Director of Artistic Planning, Marshall McGuire:
‘Measha makes her Melbourne Recital Centre debut with well-loved vocal masterpieces and spirited new works. She’s equally at home in opera, pop and jazz, and has recently released an album of African-American spirituals, songs that lie close to the musical roots of child growing up in New Brunswick, Canada.’

Measha Brueggergosman appears as part of the 2018 Proms Festival and at Let’s Talk Proms, Meet the Artists on Friday 23 March.
