Edinburgh International Festival

Schubert’s Winterreise is perhaps the greatest song cycle of them all, an intensely moving exploration of love and despair as a lonely traveller, driven from his beloved’s house, embarks on a soul searching journey through the winter snow.

German composer Hans Zender has made a remarkable creative transformation of Winterreise, expanding its keyboard accompaniment into a colourful orchestration that provides invigorating insights into Schubert’s original. The eminent Scottish Hebrides Ensemble is joined by renowned German tenor Christian Elsner for Zender and Schubert’s chilling masterpiece.

Hans Zender Schubert’s Winterreise – a composed interpretation.
