The 'Kosegarten Liederspiel': Sophie Junker, Belinda Williams, Mark Wilde & David Owen-Norris

17 October 2014, 12:10pm - 1:10pm


Sophie Junker soprano
Belinda Williams mezzo-soprano
Mark Wilde tenor
David Owen Norris fortepiano

In 1996 Morten Solvik showed that Schubert’s Kosegarten songs were a narrative cycle – Schubert’s first song-cycle, for three singers. Individually insignificant (though charming), when they’re put together in the right order they tell a tale of love & loss that has gripped and enthused audiences across the world since the modern premiere in Chicago in 1997. Renowned pianist David Owen Norris, playing an 1828 Broadwood piano, is joined by three rising star singers for a performance of this rare collection of songs.
