Schubert’s WinterreiseFranz Schubert Die Winterreise (The Winter Journey)
Rufus Müller, tenor

Days before his death from syphilis in November 1828, Franz Schubert was putting the finishing touches on this, the most famous of all song cycles. The journey of the title takes the protagonist from anger to pain, with startling detours into remembered joy and hope, then finally from despair to death.
Approximate running time is 75 minutes.
