Schubert, Franz

Winterreise, op.89, D911


David Greco (baritone)
Erin Helyard (fortepiano)


David Greco and Erin Helyard present the first Australian recording of Schubertís masterpiece on period instruments. Schubertís Winterreise is one of the greatest song cycles ever written. Completed shortly before his death at just 33, Schubertís masterpiece follows a young man spurned by his beloved who then wanders through a frozen landscape in ever-increasing states of existential angst, terror, and paranoia.

Erin Helyard and David Greco present a Winterreise thatís different from any you have heard before. This is how the work might have sounded to Schubert, a recording informed by scholarship around 19th-century performance techniques, and the different vocal traditions and pianos that existed then. But far from a dry, academic exercise, David and Erin strip away the stuffy, canonised aura of this famous work, presenting a Winterreise sung by a young man in the full fervour of love and an all-consuming passion.

This is a performancethat captures every moment of Schubertís terror and mortality, a vital and utterly engrossing performance that takes you inside a work youíve listened to many times before - but never truly heard.
