Franz Schubert’s masterpiece, his song cycle Winterreise (‘Winter Journey’), was written shortly before his death in 1828, at the age of only 31. On his winter journey, the singer wanders as a lost soul in harsh terrain, wracked with conflicting emotions, but consoled by his memories of kinder times – a vivid reminder of the emotional anguish that can touch every generation, whether from personal rejection, or from exile enforced by political, cultural or military pressures.

Benjamin Appl first encountered Winterreise as a singer – not a listener – when asked to perform it at short notice and has been hooked ever since. This winter sees the release of a John Bridcut film for BBC TV entitled Winter Journey (December 2021, date TBC), a new recording on Alpha Classics (released 11 February 2022) and a live performance at Wigmore Hall (18 February 2022) – all with pianist James Baillieu.
