Matthias Goerne baritone
Leif Ove Andsnes piano
First evening devoted to Schubert's lieder cycle with a story of love and death in The Lovely Maid of the Mill
Matthias Goerne is a giant in every sense of the word, both physically and vocally. He is, without the shadow of a doubt, the finest performer imaginable today for this Schubert lieder cycle, a repertoire that he has been constantly reflecting on for over 15 years, both on concert platforms and in recording studios. This three-evening cycle is an exceptional and priceless opportunity to approach the quintessence of this cycle, in its chronological and musical coherence, in a few hours. First evening with The Lovely Maid of the Mill, a work that still has an optimistic feel, a seasonal journey in which the themes of wandering and loneliness are already taking shape. A journey of initiation as much for the apprentice miller as for the listener, all wreathed in twilight
