A Tribute to Maureen Forrester

One of the finest voices of her generation, Canadian contralto Maureen Forrester dazzled audiences worldwide. Honouring her memorable life and career, these performances feature a new song cycle for mezzo-soprano and orchestra by Howard Shore, performed by Canadian Susan Platts, plus one of Forrester’s signature works: Mahler’s symphonic song cycle, Das Lied von der Erde. (Pictured: Maureen Forrester)
