Huge congratulations to Ian Bostridge and Thomas Adès on a magnificent finale to their “Winterreise” tour which culminated at London’s Barbican Centre last night to a sold out hall. The critics hailed it as “an extraordinary achievement” (The Guardian), “A triumph. An unforgettable concert” (The Independent) and “the most extraordinary, riveting, uncanny performance of Schubert’s great song-cycle Winterreise I have ever witnessed” (Ivan Hewett, The Telegraph).
Their Winter Journey has taken them to Vienna, Oxford, Luxembourg, Bilbao, Budapest, Warsaw and Hamburg. Tonight sees the launch of Bostridge’s long awaited book ‘Schubert’s Winter Journey: anatomy of an obsession’ published by Faber and Faber
