99. Robin Tritschler: To the Distant Beloved

22 October 2021, 20:15 - 21:30


Digital Concert Hall Click to access - watch on demand and view texts & translations

Enjoy the whole festival live online for £165 with a Digital Festival Pass. All events will be available on demand after broadcast until 30th November, so you can catch up at a time which suits you.


All evening concerts this year are performed twice, at 5.30pm and 8.15pm. This 8.15pm performance is a repeat performance of Event 97. This performance will be in-person and livestreamed.

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.
