The Winterreise Project
An innovative intensive performance course on Schubert’s beautiful and haunting song cycle Winterreise (Winter Journey) for voice and piano, explored, as in the composer’s time, through authentic amateur performance.
Authentic amateur performance
The majority of Schubert’s songs were written for amateur musicians, and yet they are performed almost exclusively by professional performers today. Join us for this important exploration to the heart of song, where we reunite Schubert’s songs with their original performers – dedicated amateur music lovers, just like you.
Our students include both performing singers and pianists, and auditor participants. Performers receive over 30 hours of musical tuition, including private and ensemble coaching, masterclasses, and much more. Each contributes 1 to 3 songs to the final joint concert of Schubert’s 24-song cycle Winterreise (Winter Journey).
An engaged audience is an important part of the Winterreise Project. Our Auditor Participants attend all ensemble sessions, masterclasses, and workshops, and provide a supportive audience, and offering crucial feedback through their attention and/or commentary.
