Winter Journey

A new English translation of Schubert Die Winterreise by Jeremy Sams comissioned by Ryedale Festival

BBC’s Last Night of the Proms star, baritone Roderick Williams, and acclaimed pianist Christopher Glynn perform Schubert’s great song cycle in English. Schubert described Die Winterreise to a friend as ‘a cycle of terrifying songs’ that ‘please me more than all the rest, and in time they will please you too.’ Wilhelm Müller’s poems depict a solitary individual amid nature at its cruellest and coldest: it’s a vision of numbing intensity expressed in music that is by turns bold and desolate, alleviated by shards of piercing beauty.
