“Exquisite beauty on this oft-travelled wintry path.”
”Winterreise” with Ian Bostridge and Thomas Adès is BBC Music Magazine‘s Choral & Song Choice – November Edition! Read a glimpse of the review below!
“In this devastating, brilliant interpretation, Bostridge’s tone is dark, expressive and fluid; from his crow-croaked ‘Krahe’ as the ominous bird follows him in the eponymous song, to his growling rolled rs of ‘Knurren’ in ‘Der Leirmann’. With Adès, he moves from the exquisite beauty of ‘Das Wirtshaus’ to the final thin, cruel breeze across the ice as the hurdy-gurdy man drones indifferently on.”
