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.
