The Winter Journey: Schubert's Winterreise in English Translation
After holiday celebrations are over, it's time to embrace winter's inward, contemplative nature. Franz Schubert's famous song cycle, Winterreise isa meditation on love and loss in wintertime. Its twenty-four songs form a story arc that has captivated audiences since 1828. Darren Chase sings his own English translation of the work, creating a direct connection to the music for an English-speaking audience. Michael Scales accompanies this two-man opera.
