Part of Bath Songs – Roderick Williams Sings Schubert’s Song Cycles
Roderick Williams is a remarkable communicator whose song recitals are richly rewarding emotional experiences. In three concerts he performs Schubert’s trio of great song cycles with pianist Iain Burnside in a project which will shed new light on some of the very greatest songs ever composed through stunning performances.
Schubert: Die schöne Müllerin
Roderick Williams, baritone
Iain Burnside, piano
In the first true song cycle ever composed Schubert offers twenty unforgettable songs ranging from rapture and to despair taking the singer from intoxicated young love to disillusion and suicide.
‘Williams perfectly captured the balance between anger and irony, bittersweet recollection and despair, and made every word, every syllable, matter.’ GUARDIAN
