This remarkable mezzo-soprano performs with raw and exposing sincerityThe Telegraph

Over its span of 24 songs, Schubert’s Winterreise is a great piece of storytelling. From the door of a jilting lover to a final encounter with a mysterious ghostly figure, each song takes us deeper into the frozen emotional landscape of someone at the edge of sanity.

Following acclaimed performances at the Wigmore Hall, mezzo-soprano Alice Coote and pianist Julius Drake share their blindingly intense interpretation of Schubert’s beautiful tale, revealing the emotional truth of this winter journey through the realms of heartbreak.
