Songs inspired by Greek mythology, including settings of Goethe’s dramatic Prometheus and Schiller’s sprawling ballad Die Bürgschaft, are just one aspect of the multi-faceted recital presented by rising Austrian baritone Markus Werba and South-African pianist James Baillieu. Their Schubert program also includes more light-hearted fare focussing on the lives of fishermen, carpenters, and goldsmiths.
