Schubert & Beethoven: Maximilian Schmitt & Justus Zeyen
28 October 2014, 13:10 - 14:10
Maximillian Schmitt tenor
Justus Zeyen piano
Maximillian Schmitt is one of the most exciting emerging tenors in Europe today. Joined by the distinguished pianist Justus Zeyen, he sings Beethoven’s ground-breaking cycle An die ferne Geliebte (‘To the distant beloved’), which paved the way for Schubert’s remarkable through-composed cycle Einsamkeit (see 5.30pm concert). Both composers were drawn to the poetry of Friedrich von Matthison, and this programme also includes settings of the poet by Schubert and Beethoven.
