Clayton + Golla: Schubert “A Winter’s Journey”
16 July @ 19:00 - 20:15
One event on 19 July 2022 at 19:00
In 1827 Franz Schubert composed an emotionally charged song cycle. Setting poems of the German writer Wilhelm Müller, Schubert created an emotional journey of a man trekking across frozen rivers and snowy landscapes, lamenting his lost love. It is indeed a winter’s journey (Winterreise), full of images and metaphors of love, loss, nationhood.
A Winter’s Journey is a new staging by Musica Viva Australia of Schubert’s iconic songs, bringing a very different winter into focus, set against a backdrop of Australian painter Fred Willliams’ vivid landscapes.
