Approximate running time: 1h 30m without intermission

Multiple themes run through the Schubert program of baritone Michael Volle and pianist Helmut Deutsch—from evocations of night and lonely wanderings to songs based on Greek mythology, including the dramatic Prometheus, from pieces inspired by settings on or by the water to the trio of graceful Italian-style canzoni. The concert also examines Schubert’s friendship with the poet Johann Baptist Mayrhofer, whose work accounts for half of the songs’ texts.

This concert is part of the Schubert Lieder Cycle.
