97. To the Distant Beloved (first performance)

22 October 2021, 17:30 - 18:45



All evening concerts this year are performed twice, at 5.30pm and 8.15pm. This 5.30pm performance will be in-person only. Please see Event 99 for information on the 8.15pm in-person and livestreamed performance.

Gramophone Magazine wrote last year of Robin Tritschler’s performance of Beethoven’s An die ferne Geliebte (‘To the distant beloved’) that ‘he combines something of Fritz Wunderlich’s warmth with Christian Gerhaher’s altogether darker introspection, and is beautifully alert to the cycle’s constant shifts of emotion and mood’. Today he is joined by Roger Vignoles, one of the world's foremost accompanists, for a performance of this great song cycle. Their recital also includes songs by Brahms and Schubert, both grouped around themes the composers were recurringly drawn to birdsong and water.


PRACTICAL INFORMATION

This event is available as an in-person and livestreamed event. The livestreamed performance will be available to watch live in our Digital Concert Hall at 8.15pm and will be available to watch again and on demand until the end of November.

Want to watch this concert in person and at home? 'Hybrid' tickets, valid both in person and for the Digital Concert Hall, are also available for an additional £3 to the in-person price.
