SEASON PRESENTING PARTNER

Maison symphonique de Montréal

Sparse accompaniment and simple, concise musical discourse intensify the expressive impact of Schubert’s Wintereisse, the composer’s final song cycle performed by tenor Ian Bostridge, a master of the lied. As a triumphant counterpart to Wintereisse’s dramatic tableaux: the heroic vigour and optimism of the composer’s last, spectacular Symphony no. 9.
