Schubert’s fascination with the songs of Mignon from Goethe’s Wilhelm Meister’s Apprenticeship lasted for more than a decade. Two of his settings—including one of the famous poem about the “land where the lemon trees blossom”—are among the highlights of Julia Kleiter’s recital program, which focuses on several characters of women and girls. The German soprano is joined by pianist Michael Gees, who is also an acclaimed composer and improviser.
