Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre
Two brilliant artists bring unique sparkle to a jewel in the crown of German lieder.
About this concert
Classical luminaries David Greco and Erin Helyard combine their considerable talents in this ARIA-nominated interpretation of Die schöne Müllerin (The Maid of the Mill).
In Die schöne Müllerin, we meet a young man with thoughts of love. Just one glimpse of the miller’s daughter at the window and he’s smitten, but in vain, for she loves another. The song cycle is loved for its breathtaking complexity, intense originality and the rich melodies that carved Schubert’s reputation as a genius of the lieder genre. Greco and Helyard’s Müllerin brings fresh insight into Schubert’s masterpiece while retaining the beauty that has made it so iconic.
‘Stripped back Schubert as Schubert might have heard it.’ Limelight magazine
‘Helyard and Greco’s Die schöne Müllerin is that rarest of things: a familiar work imagined anew.’ Music Trust
