Schubert   Winterreise D.911

Schubert's song-cycle,Winterreise, is one of the most powerful and enigmatic masterpieces in Western culture and Abbotsholme is delighted to welcome Ian Bostridge¬† this season to present his distinguished and highly acclaimed interpretation. Mr. Bostridge will also make available his book, Schubert's Winter Journey: Anatomy of an Obsession, in which he focuses on the context, resonance and personal significance of the work. Pianist Joseph Middleton makes a welcome return to Abbotsholme as accompanist and many will remember his sensitive playing during Christopher Maltman’s recital in 2013

"This was without doubt the most extraordinary, riveting, uncanny performance of Schubert’s great song-cycle Winterreise I have ever witnessed." Ian Hewitt, Daily Telegraph
