Event Details

Quite possibly the leading Lied baritone of his generation, Austrian Wolfgang Holzmair is an artist of rare communicative gifts. The Financial Times recently said “…no other singer of German song at the moment communicates so intently the rhythm and meaning of the poems.” Performing Franz Schubert’s posthumous collection of songs Schwanengesang ("Swan Song"), Holzmair will be joined by his long-time recital partner Russell Ryan. 

This collection, named by its first publisher Tobias Haslinger, is not strictly speaking a song cycle in the sense that Winterreiseor Die schöne Müllerin is. Instead, it contains musical settings of three poets, Ludwig Rellstab (1799-1860), Heinrich Heine(1797-1856) and Johann Gabriel Seidl (1804-1875).Schwanengesang was composed in 1828 and published in 1829 a few months after Schubert's death.

Doors open at 7:15pm. Two tickets per person only. Seating is limited; handicapped seating is available.
