Beautiful songs - and a noble farewell.

Schubert was an absolute master of melody and his ‘lieder’ (songs) still pack a punch 200 years after he wrote them. In tonight’s performance, these songs range from the romantic to the terrifying, and Mary Bevan and Edward Gardner bring out every nuance in the vibrant orchestrations. Schubert’s Symphony No.9 (the last he wrote) is a suitably grand final word.
