Dear friends,

These are not only regarded as the zenith of Schubert’s song composition, but as the pinnacle of German art song in its entirety. In 24 snapshots, Schubert reveals, kaleidoscope-like, the mood of a lost, injured, and lonely character. German composer Hans Zender arranged the cycle in Protected content the title: Schuberts Winterreise. His version for tenor and chamber orchestra is much more than just an orchestration. As sensitive as it is radical, it reveals the cycle’s potential to disturb, and approaches Wilhelm Müller’s poems in its own way. Zender pushes into the darkest regions of human existence. With his interpretation, he brings to light emotions that pulsate just beneath the surface in Schubert’s work, uncovering the uncanny layers in the depths of the music.

Like Hans Zender, Christian Spuck’s production, which was awarded the renowned «Prix Benois de la Danse» in Protected content , concerns itself less with illustrating the external stations of the traveler’s journey.

Looking forward seeing you again soon live and healthy!
