A Requiem in Song: Schubert's Winter Journey

When: Sat., Nov. 19, 7:30-9 p.m. 2016

A Requiem in Song is a eulogy concert for composer Franz Schubert, who died on November 19, 1828 at the age of 31. Baritone Joel Goodloe and pianist Brian Gilling will perform Schubert’s Winterreise, or Winter’s Journey, in honor of the anniversary of the composer’s death. This 24-song cycle is one of the darkest and most spine-chilling works Schubert ever created. The piece will be sung in English using Jeremy Sams’ groundbreaking new translation. This will mark the North American premiere of the text. Estimated run time: 1 hour, 30 minutes.
