Renowned for his luminous voice “capable of the most powerful explosions as well as the gentlest covered notes” (Toronto Star) baritone Russell Braun, OC, rightfully claims his place on the concert, opera and recital stages of the world. His interpretations of German Lieder have won him international acclaim – “A searching musician, Braun also has one of the world’s most beautiful baritone voices. He brings a poet’s soul and a young man’s bewildered grief to Schubert’s shattering cycle of solitude and loss.” (New York Newsday). Winner of the 2001 Juno for Apollo e Daphne with Les Violons du Roy (Dorian), Russell has twice recorded Dido & Aeneas. Russell Braun makes his home near Toronto with his wife, pianist Carolyn Maule and their sons, Benjamin and Gabriel.
