03. Wilhelm Müller’s Die Winterreise
27 February 2021, 17:00 - 18:00
Joanna Neilly, German Fellow at St Peter’s College, Oxford, introduces the poet Wilhelm Müller and explores the surprising range of his creativity well beyond the cycles immortalised by Schubert, Die schöne Müllerin and Die Winterreise. Her talk explores the cultural history of Müller’s best-known poem, ‘Der Lindenbaum’, and highlights the ongoing relevance of Die Winterreise today as an inspiration for writers around the world, from Latin America to China. Joanna’s talk is illustrated by tenor Ted Black with pianist Ana Manastireanu, who were recently finalists in the prestigious Kathleen Ferrier Awards.
