Program

SCHUBERT Die schöne Müllerin
"If you are very, very lucky, you get to hear a performance every now and then that is so sublime in execution, so profound in expressive realization that it will have a place with you for the rest of your life. I felt I had one of those experiences … when baritone Matthias Goerne sang [Schubert], partnered by Christoph Eschenbach at the piano. I felt privileged to witness it" (The Baltimore Sun). Hear for yourself when the duo comes to Carnegie Hall to unleash the heartbreaking, unrelenting sadness in this Schubert song cycle.
