Schubert - Winterreise, with readings from Captain Scott's diary given by Seán Street.

Pre-concert talk by Peter Clarkson MBE, Emeritus Associate, the Scott Polar Research Institute, Cambridge at 7.00pm free to all ticket-holders

Schubert’s extraordinary settings of Wilhelm Müller’s portrayal of a young man’s bitter sense of betrayal and his subsequent winter journey are perfectly complemented by readings from Captain Scott’s diaries of his doomed polar expedition. We are delighted to welcome back Robert Murray and Andrew West after their triumphant OLF 2012 recital.
