Matthew Rose sings Schubert’s Winterreise

Thursday 24 November 2022

7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Winterreise: the outstanding British bass Matthew Rose joins pianist Tom Poster in Schubert’s heart-stopping final song cycle.

A solitary traveller, a frozen landscape, a stricken heart: Schubert’s Winterreise takes the elements of Romanticism and shapes them into a piercing study of the human soul. Usually sung by a tenor, Schubert’s winter journey fascinates the British bass Matthew Rose, and his performances (and recording) have been praised for finding new depths in these quietly devastating songs. “Rose’s gloriously rich, dark bass makes a wonderful foil for the depth of emotion while maintaining beauty of tone throughout” wrote The Independent; add the sensitive, questioning artistry of Tom Poster on piano and this should be a performance of special imaginative intensity.
