Schubert Winterreise, D911 73’

“Wonderful. Grateful to have had an opportunity to hear him live. I’m sure in very few years he’ll be too busy and expensive to sing in Kendal!... A jewel of a concert. Appl has a wonderful voice and was mesmerising in character throughout the Schubert” Audience members 2015

Since Benjamin Appl’s remarkable LDSM début in 2015 singing the first of Schubert’s great song cycles on Müller’s poems, Die schöne Müllerin, his career has flowered, with the Gramophone Award Young Artist of the Year 2016 and appearances at major European venues as an ECHO Rising Star artist. Tonight he brings us Schubert’s other great song cycle set to this poet, depicting the emotions of a lovelorn wanderer against a bleak, wintry landscape.
