Schubert Winterreise (1hr 20’ with no interval)
The incomparable English tenor and passionate Schubert enthusiast Ian Bostridge performs a masterwork of the Lieder repertoire. A wanderer disappointed in love embarks on a journey through a winter landscape. He finds a mirror of his melancholy in its colourless and icy world, while also longing for the renewal of spring. Completed in 1827, just a year before Schubert’s death, this cycle of 24 songs offers an intimate self-portrait of an artist facing his own mortality.
Prof Laura Tunbridge discusses Schubert’s Winterreise with Peter Davison, The Bridgewater Hall’s Artistic Consultant.
