Start Date: Feb 24 2012
Location: Shalin Liu Performance Center



Featuring a total of 24 songs, Winterreise tells the powerful story of a man who has lost his love, and with a broken heart, leaves his home and ventures on a ‘winter’s journey.’ In addition to powerful poetry by Wilhelm M’ller, the piano supplies rich musical imagery: a rushing storm, crying wind, water under the ice, birds singing, ravens croaking, and dogs baying. Schubert’s epic work features acclaimed tenor William Hite and pianist and Rockport Music favorite Gilles Vonsattel.

William Hite: ‘a breathtaking communicator’ The Boston Globe
Gilles Vonsattel: ‘dazzling technique that can storm the heavens or sing in poetic introspection’ Miami Herald
