Schubert & Beethoven: Maximilian Schmitt & Justus Zeyen

28 October 2014, 1:10pm - 2:10pm


Maximillian Schmitt tenor
Justus Zeyen piano

Maximillian Schmitt is one of the most exciting emerging tenors in Europe today. Joined by the distinguished pianist Justus Zeyen, he sings Beethoven’s ground-breaking cycle An die ferne Geliebte (‘To the distant beloved’), which paved the way for Schubert’s remarkable through-composed cycle Einsamkeit (see 5.30pm concert). Both composers were drawn to the poetry of Friedrich von Matthison, and this programme also includes settings of the poet by Schubert and Beethoven.
