Schubertís Winterreise may be the most recorded cycle in the lied catalogue, but historically informed interpretations continue to be rare.
This CD demonstrates why it pays off to have a background in baroque singing and historical keyboard performance. The confrontation of Jan van Elsackerís restrained sense of drama and storytelling, and the colour and intimacy of Tom Beghinís pianoforte (Haffner, ca. 1830) spawn an unusual elaborate miniature painting in which the protagonistís wintry journey slowly transcends into a metaphysical exploration of leaving, loneliness, longing, and eventually loss.
This Winterreise may be low on surface circus, but it is relentlessly intense and unbearably tragic to its core.
