David Hobson Performs: A Winter Journey
Fri 16 Jul 10
A modern classic from Hans Zender, his stunning reinterpretation of Schubert’s Winterreise is a tour de force.
Conductor Hamish McKeich, Tenor David Hobson
Winterreise, a masterpiece from one of the greatest composers in the history of classical music, as reinterpreted through the mind of contemporary German composer Hans Zender, is a tour de force.
Zender’s creative depths in this act of homage propel this solitary winter’s journey to increased levels of tension and heightened emotions. This exploration of the text and music by celebrated tenor David Hobson, 24 musicians and sound effects takes us far from the context of the original composition for voice and piano, yet retains an ultimately Romantic vision in poetry and lyricism.
