Franz Schubert - Die Winterreise
Mark Padmore – Tenor
Paul Lewis – Piano
Composed in 1827 and first performed privately for members of Schubert’s circle, Winterreise initially received a mixed reception. Now acknowledged as the greatest song-cycle ever penned, the work (here played in the original keys) receives a profound and probing reading from tenor Mark Padmore and pianist Paul Lewis, and marks the launch of their Schubert triptych.
