About The Event

Song Recital Project presents Jason Fuh (baritone) and Edward Bak (piano) in recital performing Franz Schubert’s song cycle Winterreise (Winter Journey).

Schubert's Winterreise is a mesmerizing song cycle composed in 1827. Consisting of 24 interconnected lieder, it explores themes of unrequited love and existential despair as a wanderer navigates a desolate winter landscape. Schubert's haunting melodies and evocative harmonies, paired with Wilhelm Müller's poignant poetry, create a profound emotional journey. The piano part in collaboration with the vocal lines, integral to the work, adds depth to the somber narrative. Winterreise remains a pinnacle of art song repertoire, admired for its intensity and the sheer beauty of Schubert's musical expression, showcasing his ability to infuse compositions with profound human emotions, capturing the essence of longing and solitude within the chilling embrace of winter.

The program will be sung in German with line-by-line translation supertitles.
