Schubert: Winterreise

David Greco, Erin Helyard

One of the greatest song cycles ever written, Schubert’s Winterreise follows a young man spurned by his beloved who wanders through a frozen landscape in ever-increasing states of existential angst, terror and paranoia.

Erin Helyard and David Greco present a Winterreise that’s different from any you’ve heard before. This is how the work might have sounded to Schubert, a recording informed by scholarship around 19th-century performance techniques, and the different vocal traditions and pianos that existed then. But far from a dry, academic exercise, David and Erin strip away the stuffy, canonised aura of this famous work, presenting a Winterreise sung by a young man in the full fervour of love and an all-consuming passion. This is a performance that captures every moment of Schubert’s terror and mortality, a vital and utterly engrossing recording that takes you inside a work you’ve listened to many times before - but never truly heard.
