Notes & Reviews:

Schubert's cycle of twenty-four songs, 'Winterreise,' is a powerfully eloquent, heartrending diary of the winter journey of a rejected lover, whose unquenchable pain leads him to quiet madness and a longing for death. The piano accompaniment is often vividly wrenching, suggesting falling leaves, growling dogs rattling their chains, or the ominous beating of the wings of a crow, yet Schubert's pure harmonies keep the music well away from the edge of melodramatic hysteria.
