Russell Oberlin (1928 – 2016)

The Glenn Gould Foundation is saddened to learn of the loss of Russell Oberlin, who passed away at the age of 88. Russell was a gifted musician, part of the revival of the countertenor (male alto) vocal tradition that coincided with the Early Music and authentic performance practice movements in the second half of the twentieth century. He had unprecedented success in the United States, becoming the first prominent countertenor in American history.

The commemorative concert will replicate Gould’s 1955 Washington, D.C., premiere as part of the Phillips Collection’s 75th anniversary celebration event.
