Tenor Jon Morrell and pianist David Smith (CITV Artistic Director) bring their extensive performing experience to bear on Franz Schubert’s haunting Winterreise (“Winter Journey”) of 1827, regarded by many as the most important and challenging song cycle ever written. In Schubert’s intense sequence of songs performers and listeners alike experience an unforgettable succession of wildly varying emotions, a truly memorable passage through maturity. Along the way Schubert leaves nothing unexplored, from desperate uncertainty to exalted delusion. And in the end a powerful, but frustratingly ambiguous feeling of incompleteness prevails.
