    [New] (Schubert's Winter Journey Anatomy of an Obsession) author Ian Bostridge This is never less than interesting and often I admire Bostridge's Schubert recordings and he's obviously an intelligent artist and a decent writer But I must say that I disagree with his assertion that the tenor voice is as well suited to this work as the voices of the great baritones who have recorded it I find both Fischer Dieskau's and Goerne's convincing than hisand I think that the fact that they're baritones is a

Schubert's Winter Journey Anatomy of an Obsession characters Ä eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Onsidered the single greatest piece of music ever written for the male solo voice Deceptively brief the twenty four short poems are performed uninterrupted in 70 minutes it nonetheless has an emotional depth and power that no music of its kind has ever eualled Originally intended to be sung to an intimate gathering performances of 'Winterreise' now pack the greatest concert halls around the wor. A highly informative book on Schubert s famous song cycle the greatest piece of classical music ever as far as I m concerned by the eminent British singer Ian Bostridge I admit I d have preferred if he d delved a bit deeper into the musicological side of things but he makes up for that by putting his historical education to excellent use and presenting the reader with a wealth of information on not only Schubert s life and times but also on the broader context of early 19th century AustriaBostridge proceeds song by song and has something interesting to say about each of them on a very wide range of subjects whether he interprets Wilhelm M ller s poetry takes a look at a song s structure places it in a biographical context considers possible political implications or elucidates it from his extensive experience of performing the cycle This is no deep analysis and is not meant to be rather it is someone who loves Schubert s songs and knows them intimately chatting about them in an almost conversational tone I assume that there probably is not very much new here for the Schubert expert but for the layman it is a treasure trove of both information and insight The author is not afraid to go off on a tangent either and his freuent digressions are just as rewarding as when he is staying on subject The book contains many illustrations too although that part did not come across too well in my Kindle edition As judging by other reviews the book is uite beautifully designed too I m regretting a bit that I did not invest in a hardcover version but the book was well worth it for the written content alone and is recommended to everyone who wants to explore the background of Schubert s Winterreise in depth than the liner notes of a CD generally provide

Schubert's Winter Journey Anatomy of an Obsession characters Ä eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB An exploration of the world's most famous and challenging song cycle by one of the world's most renowned singers a leading interpreter of the work who teases out the themes literary historical psychological that weave through the twenty four songs comprising this legendary masterpiece Written in 1828 in the last months of the young Schubert's life 'Winterreise' Winter's Journey has come to be c. My first compliment goes to Knopf the publisher of this deliberately white hefty little tome Its glossy stock made it too heavy to carry around which was fine because I took my time with it anyway listening to Schubert s lieder with each chapter following the German poetry as best I could Up to now I ve regarded Winterreise as a cold slog Bostridge completely transformed my appreciationThe book of course has its conceits in terms of format and indulgences As other reviewers noted some of Bostridge s digressions are silly or slightly absurd as if he s reaching too far to embroider his word but almost always I appreciated his eccentricity the capacious range of reference the splendor of citations and illustrations after all this is High Culture and we might as well enjoy the trimmings Some stand outs a brisk tour around the linden tree through German literature the musical illumination of Will o the Wisp another excursus on ice flowers in German literature including photographs of snowflakes by Wilson Bentley the melancholy semantic echoes in einsamkeit loneliness which draw us in turn to the weird paintings of Caspar David Friedrich the inspired choice of a typographical poem by e e cummings to introduce the discussion of Last Hope Yet every conceit is grounded by Bostridge s evident love for the music and his long history of performing itSchubert based his song cycle on the poems of Wilhelm M ller and as Bostridge remarks with reference to his re creation of Goethe s Erlk nig Schubert never lets go of the musical or poetic logic it is difficult to go back to the poem without the music and not feel somehow robbedWhen it comes to M ller s poetry Schubert s transmutation of Romantic agony is sublime It s impossible for me to read the utterances of this tortured soul wandering through his snowy landscape without hearing the self indulgence of endlessly perpetuated inner directed pain As with for example Cioran there s the sense that one is celebrating misery itself But the music moves us past the ridiculous into something mysterious the Joycean ineluctable modality of the visible in which everything is a signature of something furtive profound German You ve got to decide to go with it as with any work of art This anatomy of an obsession is beautifully done a work of art in itself
