Winterreise, composed over roughly the final year and a half of Schubert’s life, not only stands as the crowning achievement of the composer’s oeuvre of lieder but also ranks among the greatest triumphs of the Western canon at large. As a complement to Concert Program III, returning Encounter Leader Michael Parloff considers this singular masterpiece and its enduring resonance as well as Schubert’s relationship with Beethoven, the other great luminary of the 1820s.
