Die schöne Müllerin, D795
Florian Boesch (Baritone), Malcolm Martineau (Piano)
Florian Boesch and Malcolm Martineau continue their journey through the Schubert song cycles with ‘Die Schöne Müllerin’, composed in 1823 to words by Wilhelm Müller.
The words are simple but depict powerful human emotions and vivid images of nature. Schubert’s imagination was seized by the opportunities the poems offered, and his music captures the dramatic conflicts and character portraits in a way he never achieved in his operatic works.
The recording of ‘Winterreise’ was warmly received by critics, The Guardian calling it “unquestionably superb”; Gramophone “inspired and quite unforgettable”; The Sunday Times “never, in my experience, has Winterreise sounded bleaker than in this magnificently sombre and vivid account…an exceptionally free, imaginative and dramatic interpretation”.
