“Even as a child, I was unnaturally obsessed with love and death,” says celebrated English tenor Ian Bostridge. “So in that sense, I really was born to sing lieder.”

Bostridge’s fascination with Schubert’s Winterreise extends beyond the hundreds of performances he has given of the 24-song cycle; the former historian has also written a book, Schubert’s Winter Journey: Anatomy of an Obsession. The book is an engrossing read, but the live performance of a winter journey across a landscape of lost love is not to be missed. Of recent performances in England, the Financial Times observed that “Bostridge gets inside the very soul of Schubert’s tortured winter traveler.” The Telegraph raved, “This was without doubt the most extraordinary, riveting, uncanny performance of Schubert’s great song-cycle I have ever witnessed.”
