Winterreise

And here is another important voice on Schubert’s “Winterreise”: Ian Bostridge, one of the leading, most exciting and original interpreters of this song cycle. Equipped with all his knowledge and twenty years’ experience of performance, the British singer has now written a book placing the “Winterreise” within a comprehensive panorama of Schubert’s time and detailing his own musical and intellectual investigation into this mysterious epic of loneliness. When Ian Bostridge reads extracts from this book after the concert and discusses them with Sarah Willis, he offers a new voice on the subject no less exciting than his celebrated tenor.
