Ian Bostridge (right) has become quite an exponent of Weill’s Walt Whitman Songs, having performed them at the Aldeburgh Festival, the Vienna Konzerthaus, and the Berliner Staatsoper in recent years. Now he is preparing to tackle once again the compact, powerful cycle of four songs with pianist Julius Drake on a program that also features Purcell, Bach, Haydn, and Britten. He will perform at the storied Théâtre de la Monnaie (De Munt) in Brussels.
