'Einsamkeit' & other settings of Mayrhofer: Robert Holl & Sholto Kynoch

28 October 2014, 5:30pm - 6:30pm


Robert Holl bass-baritone
Sholto Kynoch piano

Einsamkeit (‘Solitude’, D620) is a signature work for the great Dutch bass-baritone Robert Holl, and a cycle that is not as known as it surely should be. In a letter to friends on 3rd August 1818, Schubert wrote, ‘I live and compose like a god, as though that were as it should be. Mayrhofer’s ‘Einsamkeit’ is ready, and I believe it to be the best I have done, for I was without a care.’
