'So sing me your magic music
And flow where you will flow
Wherever you may lead me
I'm more than glad to go.'

– Wilhelm Müller (1794–1827)

Following their 2018 recording of the great song cycle Winterreise, David Greco (baritone) and Erin Helyard (fortepiano) continue their historically informed exploration of the great song cycles of Schubert with Die schöne Müllerin (The Fair Maid of the Mill).

This iconic work follows a young miller, his unrequited love for the miller's beautiful daughter, and the brook that seems to speak to him and act as a mirror for his growing sadness. At turns joyful and spring-like, at others heartbreaking and despondent, it is a complex and beautiful set of songs that has been recorded countless times by many of the greatest performers of the twentieth century.

David and Erin present a very different Müllerin; an interpretation that retains all the beauty of the work we know and love, but also reveals new colour, expression and personality as Schubert might have intended it.

Approximately seventy minutes without interval
Note Complimentary afternoon tea will be served after the performance
