Schubert's songs are almost unparalleled in their ability to speak very personally to the listener. Whilst the Austrian composer created over 500 songs in his short lifetime, a group of them based on core themes stand out amongst the very finest songs ever written.
"The Wanderer" tells not only of the physical journeys of a man, but also his travels through life and the questions which surround him.
Koen van Stade (tenor) and Amanda Miller (piano) present a mesmerising selection of this and other songs, all of which strike nerves within us all in their sense of solitude within our enormous world.
Don't miss this artistic highlight of the 2017 Australian summer season.
