A song cycle of Franz Schubert
Franz Schubert - OTA-Berlin
Dear Friends of the Piano Salon Christofori Concert evenings -
This coming Tuesday evening , the 28th February at 2030hrs we present Franz Schubert’s “Winterreise” in a great cast – as they could not be more beautiful together , the renowned accompanist Daniel Heide together with the baritone Tobias Berndt.
The latter is regarded as the great new discovery among the German singers – he won the 2009 Quasthoff’s competition and has since enjoyed a rising and captivating career with a plethora of CDs and global concerts with Rilling and Norrington.
About Schubert’s Winterreise (Winter Journey) is a song cycle for voice and piano by Franz Schubert (D. 911, published as Op. 89 in 1828), a setting of 24 poems by Wilhelm Müller. It is the second of Schubert’s two great song cycles on Müller’s poems, the earlier being Die schöne Müllerin (D. 795, Op. 25, 1823). Both were originally written for tenor voice but are frequently transposed to suit other vocal ranges – the precedent being established by Schubert himself. These two works have posed interpretative demands on listeners and performers due to their scale and structural coherence. Although Ludwig van Beethoven’s cycle An die ferne Geliebte (To the Distant Beloved) had been published earlier, in 1816, Schubert’s two cycles hold the foremost place in the history of the genre.

This will be indeed a rare opportunity this Tuesday evening – one of the most beautiful voices, laced with an unparalleled fusion, most reminiscent of the young Dieter Fischer-Dieskau, listen to one of the most profound and beautiful romantic song cycles by Franz Schubert.
