Christopher Maltman – baritone
Julius Drake – piano
In 2017/18/19 we are presenting all three of Schubert’s incredible song cycles, and I was delighted that Chris and Julius were able to be with us this year to perform Winterreise, arguably the greatest song cycle ever written by any composer. Samuel Beckett, who revered Schubert above all other composers, talked of “shiveringthrough the grim journey again” as he listened to it.
It will be performed as a late night concert by candle light, and will be a magical and moving evening.
‘He (Christopher Maltman) is a communicator and, as a singer, is remarkably skilful in the
management of his voice’ Gramophone
‘For my money this inspired accompanist ( Julius Drake) is now the best in the business’ New York magazine
