‘The clouds drift by, the stars have vanished…winds blow coldly over the hills’. Schubert never lived to finish his song-cycle Schwanengesang, and there’s no more poignant tale of love and loss. Who better to retell that story tonight than regular collaborators Simon Lepper and Gerald Finley – the superb Canadian baritone, treasured by critics and audiences alike for his ‘refined, heartfelt, supremely moving’ performances of Romantic song.
Following this performance, there will be a Q&A with Gerald & Simon led by Tim Rhys-Evans, RWCMD's Director of Music.
Recorded 'as live' on 22 May.
