Schubert

Wed 5th June 2013, 7:30pm

Live from Wilton Church, Wiltshire

Into the heart of darkness: the 24 poems by Wilhelm Müller which constitute Schubert's great, late, song-cycle form a monologue which traces the arc of a failed love affair and the desperate loneliness that ensues in its wake, a winter journey enacted amidst the darkness of a bleak frozen landscape. It is a piece which - in the words of one great lieder singer - you must be haunted by in order to sing it, and Mark Padmore's performance of it, sung without a break, comes following his commercial recording which won the 2010 Gramophone Solo Vocal Award.
