Monteverdi & Simone
One privilege of being among Canada’s greatest sopranos: if you want to perform Monteverdi and jazz legend Nina Simone in the same program, that’s your prerogative. Is this genre-straddling really such a stretch? Apparently not for Measha, whose towering stature rests on her career as an interpreter of both the classical tradition and the Great American Songbook. It may be Measha’s operatic virtuosity that earned her a spot on the Deutsche Grammaphon roster, but it’s her performances of African American spirituals that so often move audiences to tears.
