Schubert, Franz

Winterreise, op.89, D911


Werner Gura (tenor)
Christoph Berner (piano)


“this Winterreise looks set to rival the most distinguished accounts by lyric tenors...[Gura] uses a wide palette of vocal and expressive colours to make this Winter’s Journey a spiritual and emotional trajectory... Despite his tenor’s essential lyrical beauty, he can convey rage and ugliness as well”

“this very fine account of Die Winterreise completes what has become one of the most distinguished recent triptychs of Schubert song cycles on disc... Güra's sensitivity brings the text to life in a chillingly immediate way, while the pianist Christoph Berner understands his part in the dramatic scheme exactly.” - The Guardian, 18 March 2010 ****

“Werner Güra's light, lyrical tenor is in immaculately nurtured voice for this deeply considered performance... And it's fascinating to hear what Güra makes of Schubert's ubiquitous line-repetitions, adding a shadow of tremulous dread here, a redoubling of rage and a bite of irony there. Both Güra and Berner are acutely sensitive to the shifts of pace both within and between songs.” - BBC Music Magazine, May 2010 *****
