Click here to read Graham Johnson's insight into the concept for this programme and the links between Schubert, Blake, and Wilhelm Müller.

The Music Schubert’s Die schöne Müllerin, one of the seminal works of the song repertoire, was written 200 years ago. Several events today focus on this cycle, starting with this complete performance. Graham Johnson, with typical insight and brilliance, has created a programme that intersperses readings of William Blake poems (Blake died just a month before Wilhelm Müller) and the cycle of ten Blake settings for voice and oboe by Ralph Vaughan Williams.

The Artists Graham Johnson has been described as the ‘peerless song accompanist’ (The Daily Telegraph). He is joined today by the exceptional tenor Robin Tritschler for Die schöne Müllerin. Blake’s poems are read by revered actor Dame Janet Suzman, and the Vaughan Williams cycle is performed by soprano Anna Cavaliero (‘a spellbinding talent’, Bachtrack) and acclaimed oboist James Turnbull.
