Winterreise is perhaps the greatest song cycle ever written. It is a heart-rending portrayal of a winter journey full of misery and woe. A great work assumes even greater power when one realizes what it must have meant to its creator. Katrin Talbot is an award-winning photographer and violist who lives in Madison, Wisconsin.

Selected Poetry Of Anna Akhmatova. Review "It took courage beyond reckoning for Schubert to set Wilhelm Muller's poetry to music, because he saw in it his own possible fate, one of unimaginable bleakness.

One person found this helpful. One of the Best Winterreise.
I just picked up this CD, and though I guess originally it came as a package with the book, I can only speak of the CD. It has instantly moved into position as one of my favorite Winterreise. Rowe's voice is strong, lilting and unpretentious. Always on pitch, with blessedly no portentous "lieder-grumble" and not a trace of affectation, but with plenty of musical drama.
The pianist Fischer is quite forceful but paradoxically a little genteel in spots. But the approach slyly works somehow in a way that fits an updated Biedermeier masterpiece, with the edges smoothed elegantly, but not too much. It is all really beautiful, simply put.

Great opera voice, but very difficult album to find. Found it through your store. One person found this helpful. I really wanted to like this recording. Furlanetto is a superb artist in the right repertoire - but this isn't it. Winterreise was not composed for a bass voice, so any bass who wishes to sing the cycle must transpose all or most of the songs downward, which muddies the accompaniment and the makes the entire cycle unrelievedly dark. In addition, Furlanetto's voice is unusually dark in color, and with the slow tempi that he and Tchetuev have chosen, and the rather frequent use of rallentando to give certain phrases added weight, the end result can only be described as lugubrious.
In my opinion, this is a cycle for tenor or high baritone - the poetry and music are bleak enough without the added depression resulting from low keys and slow tempi. If you must have a bass Winterreise, try Hotter's third recording with Werba he may be billed as a bass-baritone, but by , he sounded like a true bass , Jose van Dam, or Matthew Rose's recent recording.
