"It was Gidon Saks's Claggart that pushed this Billy Budd over the edge into greatness. It was an extraordinarily powerful, diseased creation, and completely inside the role...It was a fantastic performance." (Opera Magazine, January 2008)
With the renowned accompanist Roger Vignoles, Mr. Saks offers a program of selections by Handel and Shostakovich, John Musto's Shadow of the Blues with texts by Langston Hughes, songs by Finzi and Ibert, and Victorian Parlour Songs by various composers .
Performance Timing: Part One - 45 min.; Intermission - 15 min.; Part Two - 45 min.
