The BBC’s Last Night of the Proms star, baritone Roderick Wiliams, and acclaimed pianist Christopher Glynn perform a new English translation of Winterreise, Franz Schubert’s great song cyle of love and loss.
Die Winterreise is one of the pinnacles of Schubert’s music. A collection of 24 songs tells the story of an unnamed character who wanders through the winter landscape, absorbed and singing with fascination at the world around him. Exploring the full range of human emotions, words and music are perfectly combined to tell a tale of tender love and devastating heartache, including outpourings of complete joy and moments of haunting beauty.
