Winterriese is the pinnacle of Schubert's achievements as a 
songwriter. Expressing the human condition though music  as never before or since, Schubert tells the story of a man's  lonely travels through a frozen landscape - it is also a winter  journey into his soul.

With unparalleled psychological insight, Schubert creates 
a world where every sound and gesture is pregnant with  meaning and memory. A performance of the 24 linked songs  of Winterreise is an unforgettably moving experience for  musicians and audience alike. It takes a singer and pianist  of huge emotional range and perception to bring Winterreise  to life. Danish baritone Bo Skovhus and pianist Simone  Young are the ideal pair to embark on the journey. Skovhus's  distinctively expressive voice has been called "a force of  nature, whose communicative power can be devastating."  Simone Young, as one of the world's great opera conductors,  is fully attuned to the intense drama of this unsparing  masterpiece, and this is a rare opportunity to hear her as  pianist, the shadow and guide of Schubert's tragic hero.  


Repertoire:
SCHUBERT Winterreise
(Winter Journey), D.911

Artist Information

From Yarmila (Utzon Music Series Curator):

Okay, this is a treat pure and simple. There are few artists
 who command the same level of international respect and admiration as Simone Young, and this pairing with the gorgeous voice of lieder expert Bo Skovhus should not be missed. And when the choice came for repertoire, I can never resist Die Winterreise.
