Watch Gerald Finley and pianist Simon Lepper performance Schubert’s Schwanengesang. Recorded on 22 May at the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama / Coleg Brenhinol Cerdd a Drama Cymru, the stream premieres on 29 May and is available through 12 June.
“‘The clouds drift by, the stars have vanished…winds blow coldly over the hills’. Schubert never lived to finish his song-cycle Schwanengesang, and there’s no more poignant tale of love and loss. Who better to retell that story tonight than regular collaborators Simon Lepper and Gerald Finley – the superb Canadian baritone, treasured by critics and audiences alike for his ‘refined, heartfelt, supremely moving’ performances of Romantic song.”
