Mark Padmore, tenor
Paul Lewis, piano
No musical pairing behind the tragic Winterreise has been more admired in recent years than that of Britons Mark Padmore and Paul Lewis. Named Musical America’s 2016 Vocalist of the Year, Padmore is celebrated on the world’s opera and concert stages for his expressive, sensitive, and pure tenor; by turns hopeful and despairing, his is surely the voice Schubert heard when he conceived this heartbreaking journey. Padmore’s profoundly moving interpretation is equally matched by Lewis’ grasp of the piano’s vital role, a triumph in live performance and on their award-winning Harmonia Mundi recording.
Program: Schubert / Winterreise, D. 911, Op. 89
