Edinburgh International Festival/Hebrides Ensemble
Hans Zender Schubert’s Winterreise – a composed interpretation

Schubert’s Winterreise is perhaps the greatest song cycle of them all, an intensely moving exploration of love and despair as a lonely traveller, driven from his beloved’s house, embarks on a soul searching journey through the winter snow.

German composer Hans Zender has made a remarkable creative transformation of Winterreise, expanding its keyboard accompaniment into a colourful orchestration that provides invigorating insights into Schubert’s original. The eminent Scottish Hebrides Ensemble is joined by renowned German tenor Christian Elsner for Zender and Schubert’s chilling masterpiece.
