In the 200th anniversary year of the composition of Die schöne Müllerin, our greatest living Schubertian pianist-scholar, and Leeds Lieder Patron, Graham Johnson gives an illuminating lecture recital on this famous cycle.

With performances by British baritone George Robarts, who is rapidly emerging as one of the most compelling song interpreters of the new generation, parts of Schubert’s great work are given, together with some of Ludwig Berger’s settings that pre-dated Schubert’s, and also performances of some of the lesser-known Schubert songs that show how the composer honed his illustrative skills in the years leading up to 1823 and the writing of the famous songs of the cycle.

This event will encourage listeners to seek out a performance of the work and listen to it with fresh ears.
