Ian Bostridge, one of the outstanding tenors of our time, earning widespread praise for his intelligent and nuanced performances, resumes his partnership with Julius Drake for their latest disc of Schubert Lieder.

From Schubert’s joyful tribute to the natural world in ‘Der Einsame’ to the desolation of ‘Der Wanderer an den Mond’, this delicately shaped programme explores the theme of longing in various guises. This release, the third volume in this Wigmore Hall Live series, captures some of the most exquisitely crafted songs of the 19th century.

“as you’d expect from a singer with such well-developed literary instincts, this is a superbly planned and executed Schubert recital.” - BBC Radio 3 CD Review, 23 May 2015 (Vol.2)

“Apart from the instantly distinguishing feature of Ian Bostridge’s crystal clear tenor voice, his signature is ever present in this second volume of Schubert songs, recorded live at the Wigmore Hall, through the sheer intelligence of the programme and the vivid sense of storytelling that brings each song alive.” - The Scotsman, 19 June 2015 (Vol.2)

“Bostridge will always be a controversial singer...Yet there is equally no gainsaying his interpretative skills, finely deployed...Drake is in every way a superb partner...The two are at their best in the sad, reflective Der Winterabend, but the disc as a whole is a fine achievement.” - BBC Music Magazine, July 2014 **** (Vol.1)
