Programme to include: 

BEETHOVEN 
An die ferne Geliebte, Op. 98

SCHUBERT 
Schwanengesang, D. 957

Mark Padmore tenor

Mitsuko Uchida piano

The lives and works of Beethoven and Schubert are tightly bound. An die ferne Geliebte (To the distant beloved) was the first coherent cycle of related songs ever created, a passionate paean to love in the allegorical form of a hymn to nature that extends techniques Beethoven used in his ‘Pastoral’ symphony. Schubert stood on Beethoven’s shoulders, raising the level of art song still further. His own collection Schwanengesang echoes Beethoven’s in its themes of lost love, distance and communion with nature. Few artists get to the heart and soul of this music like Mark Padmore and Mitsuko Uchida.
