Songmakers: Schubert “Schwanengesang”

1 August @ 13:00 - 14:00


Schubert's last song cycle was published after his untimely death at the age of 31. It comprises songs by Ludwig Rellstab, the only 6 Heine settings by Schubert and his very last song, Die Taubenpost, a fitting message of love to all of us.

Schubert’s intentions for the publication of these songs, including the order for their performance, is not clear. Hence, Songmakers conception for a cycle after Schubert’s earlier models – a journey there and back again, traversing an emotional gamut ranging from love hopeful and/or renewed, fearful foreboding to bitter disillusionment.
