About this concert
As autumn turns to winter in Melbourne, come with tenor Douglas Kelly and pianist Stewart Kelly on Franz Schubert’s Winterreise (Winter Journey), a storytelling masterpiece composed in the final months of his life. From the outset, our protagonist is in despair as he departs his lover for reasons unknown. Over 24 songs, breathtaking settings of poems by Wilhelm Müller reflect his vast range of emotions as he attempts to find a path forward. Vocally virtuosic, musically demanding and emotionally overwhelming, don’t miss this rare chance to hear this extraordinary piece, one of the definitive works of Romantic music.
Melbourne Recital Centre is committed to the safety of our artists, staff and patrons. As we reopen, a range of public health, hygiene and physical distancing measures will be in place. Click here to learn more.
