Schubert, Franz

Winterreise, op.89, D911


Hermann Prey (baritone)
Helmut Deutsch (piano)


Like many artists with an extensive repertoire, Hermann Prey had a particular piece that was a musical constant throughout his career Schuberts Winterreise. From 1952 until his death 46 years later, this song cycle figured frequently in his performances and in his memoirs. Looking back, Prey wrote: I experienced it again and again. Winterreise affected me so strongly that it cannot be compared with anything else I have experienced on stage.

This live 1987 recording from a concert at Schwetzingen Palace is a wonderful example of Hermann Preys touching interpretation of Winterreise, and listening to him sing this wonderful work never fails to be a moving experience. Prey performed this song cycle more than 70 times with his regular pianist Helmut Deutsch.
