Michael Wilmering & Daan Boertien in 'Gute Nacht' from Schubert's Winterreise

Schubert was just 30 when he wrote Winterreise yet such is the music's power and depth that we tend to associate the cycle with the experience of older performers, yet in many ways this is young man's (or woman's) music. And the cycle is wide enough and deep enough to warrant any number of performers and recordings. 

The Dutch record label TRPTK produces acoustically sophisticated recordings and they have ventured a new recording of Winterreise with two young performers, Michael Wilmering (baritone) and Daan Boertien (pianist). They have produced three one-take videos of songs from the cycle, 'Gute Nacht' (above), 'Die Krähe' and 'Erstarrung' recorded at Westvest90 Church in Schiedam, and they make an excellent taster for the complete recording.

See TRPTK website for more details.
