Ian Bostridge Sings Schubert

Composer Franz Schubert was a master at setting to music the works of both contemporary and old poets. And I love this music because of its huge emotional range.

On this new recording we hear the following:

All performed by Ian Bostridge (tenor) and Julius Drake (piano)

Ian Bostridge, one of the outstanding tenors of our time, resumes his partnership with Julius Drake for their latest disc of Schubert Lieder. From Schubert’s joyful tribute to the natural world in ‘Der Einsame’ to the desolation of ‘Der Wanderer an den Mond’, this delicately shaped program explores the theme of longing in various guises.

This release, the third volume in this Wigmore Hall Live series, captures some of the most exquisitely crafted songs of the 19th century.

Here are Ian Bostridge and Mitsuko Uchida, performing Schubert’s “Die Schoene Muellerin”:
