Schubert's song cycle on poems by Wilhelm Müller, Die schöne Müllerin (The Lovely Maid of the Mill), is one of his most important works and the 20 songs of this masterpiece move from cheerful optimism to despondency and tragedy. The Times of London says, "For Goerne and Eschenbach, Die schöne Müllerin is …an emotional journey recollected not in tranquility, but in a fierce, unquenchable anger from beyond the grave."
Performance Timing: Approximately 75 minutes, with no intermission.
PLEASE NOTE: There is no late seating and no intermission for this performance.
The Fortas Chamber Music Concerts are supported by generous contributors to the
Abe Fortas Memorial Fund, and by a major gift to the fund
from the late Carolyn E. Agger, widow of Abe Fortas.
