It’s a music lover’s dream... World-beloved mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato and thrilling conductor-pianist Yannick Nézet-Séguin join forces to take on one of the most brilliant song cycles ever written: Schubert’s Winterreise! The captivating and tragic cycle of 24 songs follows a chilling journey, recounting tales that run the full gamut of human emotion and experience. Schubert was celebrated by Liszt as a composer capable of “dramatizing lyrical inspirations to the highest degree,” a gift that listeners can appreciate to this day in compelling performances like this one.
